Undurraga, Candelabro Carmenère, Rapel Valley, Chile, 2020
(at New Malden, Surrey, 28 Jun 2021)
Drinking Window: 2021 - 2023
No great complexity here, and fairly commercial in style, but a well balanced and deeply coloured example of Chilean Carmenère, with fresh dark plummy fruit, a twist of black pepper and a velvety, smooth texture. Neither green nor jammy, this has good varietal typicity and would make a great everyday drinking option for the colder months ahead.
