Errázuriz Estate Shiraz 2009 (Aconagua)

Tasted 25/03/11, 13.5%. Widely available, about £9 UK retail. With Chilean wines, it's always good to pay a pound or two more above entry level to buy a reserva level. Errázuriz pitch themselves a tad higher than Cono Sur, etc and their 'entry levels' start at about £9! Whilst I greatly respect their higher level and single estate wines, I have found their blends at the lower price point to be a bit disappointing. However, this Shiraz blend is pleasing. Bright purple colour, white pepper and brambles on the nose. Fruit forward for sure, but there's a great mouthful of dark fruits and coffee. Good value for money, drink now. 15.5 / 20
