Chile’s Central Valley is famed for ripe Bordeaux style reds. This velvety Carmenère (a grape once common in Bordeaux) hails from the renowned Luis Felipe Edwards estate, a top family winery that leads the way in higher vineyard plantings with impressive results. The wine takes its name from a legendary Scottish naval commander, Admiral Thomas Cochrane, aka ‘the Sea Wolf’, who built a fearless reputation in the Napoleonic Wars before leaving Britain in 1818 to lead the Chilean Navy. His swashbuckling style, the inspiration for C.S. Forester’s Horatio Hornblower, helped defeat the Spanish and secure Chilean independence. It’s a tasty, moreish wine to honour such a hero. Rich plum and spice notes – perfect with bold flavoured red meat dishes.
