Concha Frontera Carmenere Chile Valle Central Rapel Colchagua Valley Red 2010
- Show All (115)
Fruity wine. A little dry at the finish. Very easy to drink, went well with roasted pork and beef.
This wine was described as a vinho verde, which it is NOT. It is very inexpensive and delicious. The server was kind enough to write down the name of the bottle -- very good with fish and excellent alone.
External Reviews for Concha Frontera Carmenere Chile Valle Central Rapel Colchagua Valley Red
Violet red in the glass; flavors of herbs, berries and pepper are apparent in the palate. The wine is soft, medium-bodied, rounded and harmonic with a persistent finish. Very smooth, this affordable sipper provides forward fruit and easy drinkability, while a touch of Carmeacute;negrave;re offers structure and longevity.
With a certain legerdemain, Torronteacute;s misdirects you like a good magician. Like its pal Viognier, one whiff and you know itrsquo;s going to be sweet, but one sip (nothing up my sleeve) and you find that itrsquo;s completely dry, with mouthcoating flavors of peach, nectarine, pear, lychee and honey. Its texture is smooth, with a viscosity that may remind one of peach nectar or 20W-50. Where these wines invariably fall down, however, is the finish. Without enough acidity, the flavors fall flat and fade. But the Jelu has a secret ingredient. With a small dose of Chenin Blanc (the grape of Vouvray and Saumur), its inherently crisp acidic structure gives a luminosity to the Torronteacute;s that elevates the flavors from beginning to end. It is the best Torronteacute;s I have tasted, sleight-of-hands down.
The Jelu vineyards are farmed organically and everything there is done by hand. This wonderful Torronteacute;s expresses aromas of honeysuckle and lychee. Flavors of Meyer lemon and white peach interact with layers of tropical fruit. Imagine a wine that is a cross between Gewuuml;rztraminer and Riesling! Plenty of body combines with bright acidity to excite onersquo;s palate. Serve this wine with a mixed green salad with goat cheese, caramelized pecans, fresh pears and Dijon balsamic vinaigrette.
Rose and Duncan Killner, owners of Jelu Estate, created this wine to promote the unique terrior of the Zonda Valley of Argentina. The property is in a box canyon, sitting on an old river bed, and the soil is alluvial. In 2012, Argentina exported more than 231,000 cases of Torrontés to the United States. The wine is light yellow and very aromatic with pear, peach, mango, almond and floral notes. This medium-bodied, crisp, clean, juicy wine is well balanced with good acidity and lemon and pear accents. The finish is long and tangy. Enjoy this wonderful wine with grilled fish, roast chicken or cheese soufflé.
Deep ruby-red. Great soil-driven aromas of cassis, licorice, graphite and loam. Hugely dense, seamless and concentrated, but with ripe, harmonious acidity giving definition to the plush flavors of creme de cassis, bitter chocolate, minerals and loam. Most impressive today on the mounting, palate-staining finish, which is almost painful yet manages to convey a light touch. Endlessly complex and vibrant wine with decades of positive evolution ahead of it. One of my favorites of this outstanding vintage.
