Viña Tarapacá Sauvignon Blanc 2005

Member Review by cyril:

Nose of Green pepper plant, typically Chilean. Powerful Aroma of blackcurrant and blackberry. The wood aging comes to stirring. On the palate, the attack on more mature fruit than on the plant. Melted, no aggressive acidity, drought or barrel. Lively and very well done. Tasting date: 15 January 2011 Maturity: Drink now Opinion on the maturity: A lot of fun today. No evidence of evolution. May still take several years

Appearance: Ruby-red with purple disc. Tears take a little time to form, are close to medium spaced out, but clear. Smell: Fleshy and sweet, gives amoras of spices and blueberries. Taste: Perfect acidity but a slightly low sugar content. Has a lot of earth and blueberries. Hints of paprica and cinnamon. It dies slowly in the mouth leaving a soft bitterness at the end. Overall: Though a very good Carmenère, I was expecting a lot more as the winery has produced some great chardonnays , cabernets and even carmenères. It is still very affordable and excellent choice in the price range.
