Garnet red in colour. The bouquet is fresh and has tantalizing aromas of blueberries, violets, orange peel, raspberry leaf and aniseed with a touch of aromatic herbs that provide freshness. The palate is vibrant, with acidity, ultra-fine tannins and very good length. This is both rustic and elegant, wild and subtle. A superb, fresh, Mediterranean blend that brings an endless finish.

As the name suggests, the company was established in Derek and Pilars' garage twenty years ago. When the one vineyard that had been supplying them with grapes decided to stop – preferring to sell their fruit to better-known producers – the Garage Wine Company looked further south to the Maule and Itata Valleys in the dry-farmed Secano Interior region. There, the winery started working with small-scale, unknown growers whose ancestors had been dry farming the land since Colonial Times. To this day, these farmers continue to use the wisdom handed down through the generations, resulting in better quality fruit and, ultimately, more characterful wines.
