Erasmo 2009, Caliboro, Maule Valley, Chile

Country: Chile

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 5

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

The slightly wild, animal notes here are from fermenting the grapes with the wild yeasts rather than using carefully selected strains that give pure fruit. Aged in pre-Colombian cellars, this blends flavours of red berries and balsamic with a feral touch that makes for a perfect match to wild boar.
