One of my favourite red wines of the year so far is Yali ‘Three Lagoons’ Carménère 2008, which works a treat with a hearty winter lunch.

Carménère is in many ways the long-lost grape of Bordeaux where, up until the mid-19th century, it formed part of the blend of many of the Medoc’s top red wines.

Today it has found a home in Chile where it is now the star red variety, capable of producing wines of real interest both as part of a blend and by itself. Yali ‘Three Lagoons’ Carménère 2008 is a good place to start to experience this grape - it has 15 per cent syrah in the blend and has been aged in a mixture of French and American oak.

Lots of black fruits with spice and pepper and a long finish. Perfect with

steak or casserole.
