For some time now the Chilean wine industry has become known as a producer of reliable, low-priced reds in the form of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. But over the past decade many winemakers in that region have taken their craft even higher into the Andes to find cooler, drier weather conditions for expanding into other wines to produce.
With the higher elevations found in the mountains wine growers are finding the right conditions needed for producing premium sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. These vineyards are now starting to be successful in the wine market with their offerings that seem to be some of the best produced around the world.
With a Pinot Noir that is not too frutti or acidic but instead rich and full of velvety tones the Chilean mountain wines are really making a splash in the industry. While the great swing between daytime and nighttime temperatures makes for smaller yields the quality of the grapes produced makes for exceptional wines to bring home from the store in your Bahamas Sunset Wine Carrier. Look for one of these varieties of Chilean wines for your next purchase and try an offering from the high Andes for something a little new.
