One of my favourite wines and a must buy when the price is right.

It all started in 1883 when Don Melchor de Concha y Toro, founder of this winery, brought back to Chile the most exclusive grape vines from the Bordeaux region of France.

These varieties developed extraordinarily well in the fertile Maipo Valley soil, achieving unexpectedly good results. Aware of just how good his wine was, Don Melchor de Concha y Toro decided to set some of the best wines aside for himself.

After some time Don Melchor de Concha y Toro realised his best stock was disappearing and came to the conclusion the locals were stealing it from him.

As the locals were very superstitious Don Melchor de Concha y Toro spread a rumour that the devil lived in the cellar and the stealing stopped instantly and to this day the legend still exists and is still one of the most famous cellars in the world - Casillero del Diablo.

Appellation : Central Valley
Aging : 70% aged in small American oak barrels and 30% in stainless steel tanks during 6 to 8 months.
Colour : Deep and intense red ruby.
Nose : Blackcurrant, black cherry and black plums notes; vanilla, mocha, toasted coffee and chocolate nuances from barrel aging.
Taste : It is a smooth yet intense concentrated wine, dense, vibrant. Elegant, long and pleasant lingering.

This wine is a great match to red meats, herby dishes or mature cheeses such as Gruyere or blue cheese.

75cl Bottle.

13.5% Vol.

You could have got 21 bottles of this for £3.05 with Gondola until yesterday. I picked up 9 bottles of it plus 6 others from them. It's a shame that so many people were posting offers for the cheaper rubbish on Gondola instead of this one.

Morissons are also doing 10% off if you buy 4 bottles so potentially £16.16 (£4.04 a bottle)

Deal is still on .The merlot 2010 is currently £5.00 (worth £7.00 odd)
Nice bargain!
They have a nice wee animation on their site to advertise their "legendary" history.
Looking forward to it!
