    A spicy blend of Carmenere and Petite Verdot that is balanced, and fruit driven.  Look for black cherry, blackberry and fig with earthy undertones, notes of chocolate, tobacco, tea leaves and savoury spice from the Carmenere.  The Petite Verdot adds another layer of ripe black fruits, plum and spice on both the nose and palate.

    THE REGION:
    The Curico Valley is in central Chile, south of the capital, Santiago.  It’s a warm valley between the Andes and the Coastal mountains.  The valley has a Mediterranean climate that experiences hot days and humid cool nights ideal for growing aromatic and flavourful grapes.  The soils are composed of limestone and volcanic rock which both contribute to the bold flavours in this wine .

    Beef brisket, filet mignon, and BBQ lamb chops are just a few of the dishes to pair with this Chilean blend.  Stuffed peppers with chorizo and rice, and legume-based dishes are also an excellent match.  Try with hard cheese such as aged cheddar or pair it with 70% dark chocolate.

    Chiva is located in Valencia which is the centre of Spain’s sunny east coast.  The Riverland region in southern Australia is the largest wine growing region that is located east of the Barossa Valley and extends along the Murrary River.  Chiva experiences very hot days that are relieved with a sea breeze from the Mediterranean.  Riverland with a continental climate sees hot dry and sunny days and relies on the Murray River to irrigate the vines ensuring fully ripe and flavourful grapes .

    THE FOOD:
    A great wine to match with any grilled, stewed or braised meats especially rosemary rack of lamb.  The spice in Grenache also pairs well with hearty dishes that are herb-heavy and savoury such as herb roasted vegetables or ratatouille .  For cheese try Manchego or mild blue.
