Valdivieso 2005 Eclat


Price: Around $27

Rating: ★★★☆☆

Color: Dark red-violet

Nose: Cherries, raspberries and oak

Taste: Tart with a lime edge to it. Medium bodied with a bit of spice.  Tannins were mild.

Summary: This wine was one of the red blends I tasted in last week’s Wine of Chile blogger tasting.  It was the only one of the bunch that I think could be paired up with fish, a hearty swordfish or halibut steak. It would also pair well with chicken.

The blend consists of 56% Carignan, 24% Mourvedre, and 20% Syrah.  The fruit is sourced from the Chile’s Maule Valley.
