Eduardo Brethauer is a journalist, writer and traveler. Author of the hilarious wine guide Vinos con Cuento. Owner and Wine Editor of Vitis Magazine. Member of the Circle of Wine Writers, La Commenda Major de Rosselló and Círculo de Cronistas Gastronómicos y de Vino de Chile. Founder of Vignadores de Carignan, a unique association of producers that reinvented a viticultural tradition of 5 centuries in Maule Valley. He doesn’t believe in scores. “They’re fuckin’ stupid”, claims. He and his brilliant collaborators are always seeking for character and identity. Their goal is to rescue and put in value wines, spirits and food treasures from forgotten corners of the world.
This young Panquehue winery (Aconcagua) moves at a dizzying pace. Not only dared to climb the Andes mountain range, but now amazes us with this voluptuous Porto-style Syrah (the fermentation is cut with brandy). With 16.1º of alcohol and notes of butterscotch, chocolate, dried plum, violet, lavender and rosemary, it lulled the palate with its sweetness and elegance. I want more Chilean wines like this one.
