Intense cherry red in colour. The bouquet shows blackberries, lots of caramel and roasted coffee, bell pepper and dried cherries. The palate brings rich black fruit and roasted spices with hints of red apples and earthy, savoury notes. Full bodied with very vibrant, mouth watering acidity, black-cherry nuances and firm tannins. Lush with a moderately long 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.
