Santa Rita, Casa Real Reserva Especial 2018

Santa Rita, Casa Real Reserva Especial 2018

Nuanced dried herbs with savoury blueberry and grilled butterscotch on the opening beats. A really enjoyable wine – juicy, muscular and broad shouldered but with balance. As it unrolls through the mid-palate you are gripped by strong coffee grounds and cocoa bean notes, and the whole thing is a gourmet slice of pleasure. First year on the Place de Bordeaux for this exceptional Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon, now 30 years in existence, with vineyards at the foot of the Andes.
