Chilean Carmenère

Chile has changed incredibly since I first visited 20 years ago, from the country itself to the wines it produces; it's been fascinating to witness.

One significant recent change is the arrival on the scene of really excellent carmenère. It's taken the Chileans a while to get it right but now I'm excited by it and wanted to tell you about its renaissance.
