Richards releases his top 10 Chilean wines

RE Velado 2009 (Casablanca, 14%)

RE VELADOA wine that delights and bewilders in equal measure. Serendipity marks it: Pablo Morandé Sr relates how some barrels of Pinot Noir were lost after the 2010 earthquake.

When rediscovered, they had a film of yeast growing on them; Morandé decided to blend them and make this esoteric but virtuoso wine that tastes like a cross between Fino sherry and flat (but wonderfully invigorating) vintage champagne. Structured, complex, replete, shocking, delicious.
