My recent conversation with Rodrigo Soto got me thinking about Chile. So it was quite serendipitous that not long after I wrote about it, I got to speak with Michael (“Schach”) Schachner. He reviews the wines of Chile for The Thuse and we had a lively discussion about the state of the country’s wine industry and what’s exciting/unexpected. It’s all on the latest episode of What We’re Tasting, a dang Chilean wine podcast!
Get to know Sryah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc.
Also a reference to legendary punk band Suicidal Tendencies is dropped during a Carménère conversation.
But that’s not the only “C” red grape discussed. Look out for Cinsault and Carignan.
Finally, white wines get some love. From “chill it and kill it” Sauvignon Blanc to the greatly improving quality of Chardonnay, red’s not the only game in town/country.
So May Grapes That Start With “C”
