This week Wine Spectator released their annual list of their Top 100 Wines of the year. This year 4 Chilean wines made the cut.
Placing at number 87 is Veramonte’s Ritual 2008 Pinot Noir. See my tasting notes on it here. Wine Spectator gave it 90 points. Retail $20
Placing number 89 is La Viña Agricola’s 2008 Polkura Syrah. Scoring 91 points and retailing at $23.
And last but not least, is De Martino with their 2007 Reserva Legado Syrah, coming in with 90 points. Retail $15. I haven’t tried this one yet but their Legado Reserva Chardonnay is pretty darn good.
See the pattern? 3 great wines for $21 or less! That’s one of the great promises of Chilean wine. That’s value.
