Santa Carolina and Astobiza Estate featured in The Wine Merchant

31 October 2018

Santa Carolina and Aztobiza Estate have been featured in the October Issue of the Wine Merchant magazine.

Astobiza Estate's classic Txakoli from a single vineyard, Txakoli de Alava 2017, received excellent coverage in the 'Tried & Tested' section -

"[This wine is] made with fruit sourced from 650m above sea level in Spain's Basque country, this isn't the kind of wine to slip down anyone's throat without comment or question. It's piercing green-apple notes and rustic texture, and rich, fruity depth, make it a conversation starter as well as an attractive table adornment.

RRP: £17.29 / ABV 12.5%"

‘Carolina’ Reserva Carmenère 2016, Santa Carolina's iconic wine from the Riconada vineyards near the Cachapoal River, also featured -

"Chile isn't setting the pulse racing for everyone in the wine trade right now but there are some things it continues to do very well, at modest prices. Here's a case in point: a polished, juicy Carmenère, with rich blackcurrant and violet aromas, a firm, smooth, fruity body and a lingering, savoury finish.

RRP: £11.99 / ABV: 13.5"
