Richards releases his top 10 Chilean wines

Santa Carolina Estrella de Oro Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 1967 (Macul, 13.2%)

Santa Carolina Esrella de Oro 1967Stunning.

Confounds the theory that lighter-bodied Chilean wines can’t age. Haunting tobacco, malty, dried herb aromas.

The colour is amazingly young and the wine is still vibrant and full of life and character. Such a shame this Macul vineyard has disappeared under Santiago’s concrete sprawl.
