Santa Rita Casa Real Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Chile

Country: Chile

Colour / Style: Red

Featured in: Episode 9

As chosen by: Joe Fattorini

Here is one of the world’s great ‘icon’ wines, that deserves the title and is still within reach of mere mortals. A wine that changed our perceptions of Chilean wine forever. It remains true to its origins with a deftly crafted masterclass in pure Cabernet Sauvignon. Cassis, spice, cedar, toast and the capacity to age. Serve with something devastatingly simple like a roast Cote de Boeuf. Let the wine sing.
