Garage Wine Co was literally started in a garage in 2001, by Etobicoke expat Derek Mossman and his wife Pilar Miranda. Since then, the dynamic duo have chosen to revive old vineyards in marginalized Chilean communities. They work mostly in the regions of Maule and Itata where they make highly coveted wines.
This is a single-plot Garnacha from a small parcel on a historic Caliboro farm. This plot is a separate parcel further from the banks of the Perquilauquen river, and has two deep esteros on each side that lend it terrific drainage.
On the nose it's potent, mineral-accented raspberry, cherry liqueur and potpourri aromas are complemented by a suave Asian spice note that builds in the glass. Seamless, penetrating and appealingly sweet, offering palate-staining red and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors and an exotic flourish of five-spice powder. Finishes sappy, smooth and extremely long, displaying harmonious tannins and a lingering suggestion of candied lavender.
Garnachas hold up well to hearty dishes like cassoulet and it's a good match for less spicy styles of Asian cooking.
