Metic Carmenere

The Metic wines are made by Luca Hodgkinson: a French/English/Spanish expat, who consults for many wineries in Chile and has his own business sourcing grapes from sustainable and in many cases organic vineyards. They make the wines with less manipulation than one would expect at this level. Metic was the term used in Ancient Greece for a foreigner living in Athens that contributed to the cultural and economic life but did not have the same rights as a true citizen. This wine was inspired by famous song ‘Le Métèque’ by Georges Moustaki and led Luca to call this wine Metic.

Light filtration and very limited sulphur. Ripe dark fruit flavours, very soft palate, an easy drinking Carmenere. Try drinking it with meat empanadas (small Chilean Cornish pasties!) and lamb chops. Chile, 13.5%
