75cl * 14% ABV * Central Valley / Maule Valley, Chile
The Garage Wine Company began as a small project in Derek Mossman's garage. Sourcing Cabernet from Maipo and Carignan from Maule in Chile, his wines are made via very hands-off means, farmed by hand and horse and fermented spontaneously, and have become some of Chile's most exciting bottles. 70-year-old Carignan vines result in a an earthy, rustic wine but with a touch of smoked meat to the rich blue and black fruit. Sappy and juicy, it has a long floral finish and a gentle grip of tannins. Please note that each bottle varies slightly due to the producer's recycling programme. Drink to 2025.
