Enclosed, packed in a Foods From Chile muslin bag, I found these products made from Chilean foods: a bottle of 100% pure blueberry juice, a jar of onion jam in merlot wine, a bottle of extra virgin olive oil, and a can of mussels in oil.
That same day I also received three bottles of Malbec for Malbec Madness April 17–two from Argentina, and this 2011 Casillero del Diablo from Concha y Toro in Chile!
In addition, I’m looking forward to tasting two more wines from Chile that are on their way: new releases from Viña Ventisquero, a leading producer of estate and single vineyard wines–Queulat Sauvignon Blanc and Queulat Pinot Noir.
Queulat Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2012
Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: Leyda Valley
Queulat Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2010
Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir
Appellation: Casablanca Valley
So if you, like me, can’t go to Chile, we can at least enjoy Foods (and wines!) from Chile like these!
