2014 Koyle Cerro Basalto, Los Lingues, Colchagua Valley
£17, 14, The Wine Society
Tasted at: Wine of the Week
Grown on basalt soils identified as ideal by the French terroir consultant, Claude Bourguignon, for Mediterranean grapes, this is a stunning blend of mostly Mourvèdre with Grenache, Carignan and Syrah. Liquorice, damson, tapenade and blackberry flavours are embellished by bright acidity, savoury, grippy tannins and just a hint of oak.
