2013 Gilmore Mariposa Red Blend Maule Valley

SKU #1318289 93 points Wine & Spirits

 Daniela Gillmore and her winemaker husband, Andrés Sanchez, dry farm this syrah and merlot in their vineyards adjacent to their winery in Loncomilla. This is vibrant in its red fruit flavor, rich in strawberry and herbal notes, electric in its acidity, a red with enough grip and density to enjoy side by side with the most decadent of hamburgers. Don’t forget the bacon.  (2/2017)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 he 2013 Mariposa is a red blend of Syrah and Merlot in equal parts. The grapes come from old vines on granite soils in San Javier in the Maule. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in used barrels for 12 months. It's very aromatic, surprisingly perfumed and with a notable absence of herbal aromas. Again, the place is stronger than the variety. The palate is soft and approachable with clean and tasty flavors, with very good freshness. Dry-farmed and from a cool vintage in a warm place. Really tasty.  (4/2017)

- Located on the western coast of South America and bordered by the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Andes to the East, the Chilean wine-growing climate is similar to that of California's Napa Valley and Bordeaux. The Chilean wine industry is known for being consistently free of phylloxera, but political and economic unrest has brought its own source of disorder. The recent establishment of a free market has resuscitated the wine industry, and significant investments have been made, switching the economic focus from domestic production to exports. Chile produces roughly a quarter of the wine Argentina produces, and is known for single-varietal exports, predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. It's a popular region in the U.S. known for inexpensive and tasty wine.
