Chile


Lab White Lab White $10.00



Terrapura Carmenere Terrapura Carmenere $12.00

Lovely soft green pepper nose with mineral and an herbal touch blended with tobacco and flowers. Black fruits and dried figs on the nose combine with soft and juicy tannins and concentrated fresh fruit flavors. Fire up the BBQ and grill some steaks or Portobello mushrooms to eat alongside a glass. It would be great with Mexican food as well with its subtle spice notes.



Lagar de Bezana Lagar de Bezana $14.00

Small production, 2,500 cases a year, high altitude, single vineyard Cab from atop the Cachapoal mountain range in Chile. Showing blueberry, black fruit, bell pepper, vanilla and baking spice. Chewy tannin with a lingering finish. Begging for a ribeye and a fireplace.





Prisma Prisma $15.00

From the steep, high elevation vineyards of Casablanca, this sustainably farmed Sauv Blanc has everything going its way. Aromatic nose, bright palate, lemon, lime grapefruit and undertones of minerality. Mouth watering deliciousness, pairs excellent with a variety of foods.



Casa Toqui Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Toqui Cabernet Sauvignon $16.00

The world is awakening to Chilean Cab. This one has bright cassis and blackberry fruit with lots of toasty oak. Nicely balanced acidity with the fruit from a cooler but still sunny region in Chile.



Matorral Matorral $19.00

200 year old bush vines are dry farmed to create a robust, deeply concentrated wine among the rolling hillsides of the Maule Valley in Chile. Spicy raspberry and cherry notes, an undertone of savory smoky notes and dried herbs. Medium body with noticeable tannin, natural winemaking style with no filtering.



Polkura Malbec Polkura Malbec $20.00

This Malbec from Chile gives Argentina a run for its money. Deep purple in color with an explosively aromatic nose of black currant, black cherry, mocha, clove and cinnamon. This full bodied wine shows the same dark fruit on the palate and an tight embrace of tannic muscle. Really shines with some fatty beef, this wine is oozing characcter.



Orchard Wine Cellar Movers and Shakers This Week

  • Tintero Moscato

    #1 Tintero Moscato

    Sori Gramella refers to the one of the only single vineyard Moscatos, and Marco is the only producer to bottle this striking limestone amphitheater commercially. Once the 30 year old vines give up their bounty, and the grapes are harvested and pressed, they are kept in stainless steel at a low temperature to prevent fermentation until an order is received in order to provide the freshest wine possible.

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #3 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Hunky Dory Tangle

    #4 Hunky Dory Tangle

    This white blend is unlike your usual NZ Sauv Blanc, an organic blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer and Riesling done quite dry. Shows honeysuckle, white peach and clean stone on the nose with flavors of apple peach and rose petals. The acid is softer and rounder than sav blanc but crisper than most any Gewurz or Riesling you may have had. Yes, it really is "hunky dory". (behind by 15 bottles)

Red fruits and floral notes accompanied by that earthy, forest floor, mushroom that Burgundy is known for. Beautifully balanced, definitely one that should have a place at your table.
