Viu Manent, San Carlos Single Vineyard Malbec 2013 Colchagua
From the century-old San Carlos vineyard, aged for 16 months in French oak.
Dark purple. Very rich nose from the Chilean Malbec specialists. There is huge concentration here. And marked acidity but this is counterbalanced by the intricacy and concentration of the fruit. This wine seems underpriced to me if it really is a recommended retail price. This is history in a bottle. Complex but not too heavy.
Viu Manent, ViBo Punta del Viento 2013 Colchagua
El Olivar Vineyard, 71% Grenache, 16% Mourvèdre, 13% Syrah.
Healthy crimson. Rich, well-integrated nose. Quite racy structure and dry, savoury finish even if the palate entry is pretty sweet. An entertaining wine (I don’t think I have ever written that before.)
