Chile

The pace of change in Chile has been impressive with new regions emerging and earning their place for their individual specialisms.

At Alliance, our regular travels to Chile allow us to keep in touch closely with the producers and source the best value on offer.

Alliance Wine's own production brand 'Los Espinos' from Espinos y Cardos has always proven to be a real hit offering great value and consistently over delivering on quality. The Reserva and Gran Reserva ranges from Indómita show the same unbeatable value at higher quality levels and can offer the traditionally Chilean Carménère variety as well as Pinot Noir which thrives in the cooler climate of the CasablancaValley. For 2016 we have introduced the Santa Macarena Pinot Noir, a bright, aromatic and fresh Pinot supportedwith subtle oak and fresh red fruit flavours.

At Odfjell, the quality speaks for itself with their pioneering spirit capturing the best ofChilefrom Maipo to Maule. Their strong belief in sustainability, Organic and Biodynamic practices in the vineyard go hand and hand with carbon neutral practices in the winery. Care is taken at every stage to ensure optimum quality and authenticity.

If you thought Chile was all about Merlot and Sauvignon then try their Armador Syrah or Orzada Cabernet Franc or their very 'Old Vine' Carignan from dry-grown 100 year old vines in Maule.

Regional diversity is, of course, hugely important and we are now pleased to introduce Casa Marin, a family run winery established in 2000 located in Lo Abarca and only 4km from the coast.
