Wine of the Month Selections from Chile and Spain

 

Over the past month we’ve been serving a couple of delicious red wine choices as part of our Edge Wine of the Month collection; a Chilean Carmenere, and a Vilosell from Spain.

Here’s a little something to whet the appetite:

The Carmenere
La Playa 2008 from Colchagua Valley, Chile
Hand-harvested grapes from 17 year old vines produce the deep red colour of this well-balanced and full flavoured wine offering prolific plum tones as well as notes of chocolate and vanilla spice.   Originally grown in the vineyards of Bordeaux, Chile’s abundant sunshine and warm climate have proven to make it the perfect home for the Carmenere varietal, sometimes referred to as the ’Grand Vidure’.

The Vilosell
Tomas Cusine 2008,Costers Del Segre, Spain.
From the Catalonia region of Spain, this hand-harvested grape is dark red cherry in colour.  The Vilosell 2008 is a blend of Ull Del Llebre, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Samso and Gamacha.  With a variety of tones including blueberries, raspberries and red fruits, spices of clove, cocoa, and white pepper, and the smoky aroma of noble wood, this is a full-bodied wine with intense flavours.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Edge bar, or in the restaurant for dinner where you can enjoy a glass or two of the excellent range of red and white wines we have stocked in our wine cellar.  Either choose from the Wine of the Month collection or from our regular wine list.
