Part of the Chile's Garage Wine Co. range from small, single old vine vineyards. They pride themselves on creating small lots of handcrafted wines with grapes sourced from small growers in the Maipo and Maule valleys. This wine uses a single parcel of Cabernet Franc from the Las Higueras vineyard in Maule. Farmed by hand and horse, the grapes are fermented with native yeasts, hand punched and pressed, before barrel ageing over two winters.

Lot #82 is an intense, richly textured, spicy wine with aromas and flavours of cherry, redcurrant and violet, along with smoky mineral notes on the finish. Has potential to develop in the bottle for many years to come. Try with a range of roast meats, tomato pastas or blue cheeses.

Garage Wine Co. was founded by a group of wine enthusiasts who decided to make world class wines from, well, their garage! Stripping winemaking back to basics and selling to friends and family, it appeared their traditional, lovingly crafted approach was a great success, with demand soon enough exceeding supply. Truly unique, bold and eclectic wines with wonderful complexity of fruit, they maintain a relatively small output regardless of their international success to ensure the highest quality is maintained.
