Added Nov 5, 2013 at 4:58pmBought this today, only because it is on 'special' in the supermarket! I'm generally not a fan of Chilean wines, but I loved this one. It has a beautiful aroma and is fresh, fruity and bold without leaving an after taste in your mouth. I bought it to enjoy with an Autum beef pie, but ended up enjoying 2 glasses on their own before the pie was cooked. I highly recommend this wine, especially for its price.

Added Aug 27, 2013 at 6:13pmI enjoyed this with some salmon and salad at a BBQ about a week ago. It perfectly complemented the summer menu, and was easy to enjoy alone as well.

Added Oct 26, 2011 at 3:40pmThough I am usually a Merlot or Tempranillo fan, I found this Sangiovese very fresh and delightfully refreshing. The softer hues and tone of the red is attributable to the combination of 85% Sangiovese and 15% Montepulciano grapes, well blended to form a fragrant, fruity wine with a distinctly wild-berried flavour. I had it with a vegetarian lasagne in a rich tomaty sauce with a semi-mature Gouda (instead of Mozarella) cheese in order to not overpower the freshness of the wine.

Added Oct 26, 2011 at 3:34pmThis semi-sparkling light and fruity wine is perfect for apertifs and first courses of white meat and seafood. Ideal with hors d’œuvres, it is absolutely superb with salty foods like green olives, capers, feta cheese, pates and tapenades etc. It has a clean finish and is perfect for making sparkling-wine cocktails as well.

Added Jun 11, 2011 at 10:16pmI tasted the Sauvignon Blanc the other day, with a cheesy salad, here in Holland and was pleasantly surprised as I am not usually a Sauv Blanc fan. Like the Rose I tried today, it appears that a little experimentation is always a good thing! How exciting it is to be able to expand my love of wines and venture beyond my peculiar love of Australian Reislings and California Merlots, to other blends as well!

Added Jun 11, 2011 at 7:36pmI'm not ususally a huge fan of Rose's but I thought I would try one with a light snack of salmon and cream-cheese on wholewheat crackers in lieu of a proper dinner. The label said, 25% less alcohol, so I was skeptical, but after 3 glasses, I have found that it is as inoffensive as advertised, and leaves a sweet but gentle flavour in the mouth. It tastes great alone as well. I may try a few more Rose's after this one.
Added Jun 26, 2011 at 8:28pmBought a bottle of this yesterday to go with an entrecote in a creamy-cheese sauce. Since moving to Holland, I have become a bit spoilt for choice and have come to expect quality from dairy prodcuts, so I wanted a wine to complement, rather than clash with the heavy dairy flavours. This Tempranillo hit the spot with a perfect zing! I love it, it is bold, fruity, woody and leaves a delicious after taste. After yesterday's efforts, I decided to eat-out, but I enjoyed anothe glass of the Tempranillo on it's own this evening, and am still well-impressed with the frangrance and flavour. I have actually added some room on my wine-rack next to my coveted Merlots. That says plenty!
