    Chile has 2,700 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline with the towering Andes to the east.  The Cachapoal Valley slices across the country just south of the capital Santiago.  Here the cool night air and stony soils promote complexity and freshness in the wines.  Here in the Cachapoal Valley, Carménère is the home grape.  It originated in Bordeaux but now grows almost only in Chile, the best in the Cachapoal Valley. The wine is treasured for its supple red-and-black berry flavours and herbaceous green pepper notes.

    Château Los Boldos’s Gran Reserva wines are produced from a careful selection of plots in its Cachapoal vineyards, from vines aged over 10 years old. Grapes are harvested by hand and the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. The wine is deep red in colour, with violet hints. On the nose there are intense, fruity aromas of blackberries and ripe plum, as well as dark chocolate. The structure is round, with good acidity and a long, persistent finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
