Product description

The War of the Worlds
Whereas the Old World sticks to its traditions, the New World fearlessly looks to the future. Regulations are scarce in vineyards distant from Europe and their wines reflect originality and a character that's more approachable for the general consumer. However, the Old World accuses the new producing countries of concentrating too much upon the grape variety and forgetting the terroir in which the vines grow. As usual, the debate does no more than engender a rich diversity and the infinite number of wine styles existing nowadays means an endless challenge for any wine tasting enthusiast.

Viña Cubillo is the entry red from Viña Tondonia, a historic winery that incarnates as few successfully do the virtues of the more traditional Rioja. The Vincent Bourgogne Blanc JJ shows how well the Chardonnay grape and oak get on together, while the FFontalpino Chianti Classico presents us with one of the finest interpretations of the Sangiovese grape. The Errazuriz Estate Series Sauvignon Blanc dispels any doubt over the adaptation of the French varietal to Chilean territory, whereas the Marimar Estate Mas Cavalls Pinot Noir offers us an individual version of the much-adored Burgundy Pinot Noir. We'll finish up in Australia with the De Bortoli VAT 9 Cabernet Sauvignon, a fine example of a modern and expressive Australian red, abounding in menthol and ripe fruit aromas.
