Apaltagua Reserva Syrah 2018, Maule Valley Chile (Six Bottle Case Offer)
Apaltagua are producers of an incredibly diverse range of wines from seven vineyards and valleys across the viticultural paradise that is Chile. Apaltagua, in some years, rank among the most decorated estates in Chile, despite this many wine enthusiasts have yet to discover their wonderful wines due to minimal presence on the UK market. Waddesdon has access to a large selection of their portfolio including the double-gold medal winning Signature Cabernet and their incredibly rare coleccion range. Alongside these we have the Apaltagua Reserva range, which showcases a mature and complex Carmenere, and an invigorating and beautifully balanced Riesling plus this juicy elegant Syrah.

In the glass Apaltagua Reserva Syrah possesses a shimmering purple edged ruby colour with an opaque core. The nose starts off with modern and juicy black fruit, cherry, mint and a touch of liquorice. The depth and juiciness of the nose lead you expect a full bodied palate, but you’d be wrong – this is all about elegance and supple black fruit, peppered with spice and mint. A really wonderfully balanced wine from Apaltagua.

Apaltagua Reserva Riesling 2018, Casablanca Valley, Chile£15.00 Buy As you except from Riesling, this wine delivers an aromatic explosion. There's zesty citrus fruit, lime peel, apricot and honeysuckle. It's a sadly fashionable stance to disregard Riesling, often due to fears of abundant levels of residual sugar. If you share those concerns don't worry. This is dry, with just a few grams of sugar per litre. The palate possesses razor like acidity that cleans up beautifully. The balance of fruit, acid and texture is quite remarkable given it's price point. Great stuff. It works wonders with pork belly and apple sauce.
