Valle del Cachapoal, Central Valley, Chile
Let's face it, the four friends behind Clos Des Fous have to be a little nutty. Most winemakers in their right mind would not plant traditional French and German grape varieties in such an extreme and harsh climate as the Cental Valley in Chile. However, they have and we celebrate and applaud their effort in making delicious and interesting wines where few dare to explore. This wine has a perfume akin to black cherry, cedar and bay leaf with flavors of cassis, clove and date seducing the palate. Pair with grilled flank steak, mushroom pot-stickers, or garlic soy chicken wings.
