Santa Carolina Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Chile
One of those Chilean wines that the world fell in love with in the 80’s. A fruity, curranty, mid-weight Cabernet that was all about the fruit, not a Quixotic journey to find a way of expressing the soil or the winemaker’s heritage in liquid form. It needs food to really flourish – I like pork dishes or my favourite Chorizo and Butter Bean stew. That hint of paprika spice has a complement in the wine’s finish.
