KeeperCollection @KeeperColl:@MaipoWines we want to know abt #wines we are tasting today. Tell us about the Gran Devocion 85% Carmenere, 15% Syrah #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl: Gran Devocion - distinctive character of Carmenere, expressive, rich ripe fruit aromas, sweet spice, some chocolate @MaipoWines. #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl: This expressive wine shows #Carmenere’s complexity, offering structure and a long finish, while retaining vibrancy and freshness. #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl:we want to dig into the Protegido: 97% Cab. Sauv., and 1% each of Cab. Franc, Petit Verdot and Syrah @MaipoWines #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl: @MaipoWines ode to #Cabernet Sauvignon, from the upper Quinta de Maipo area, with deep, alluvial soil perfect for the variety #SommChat

KeeperCollection @KeeperColl:The Cab. Sauv. is refined @MaipoWines by adding touch of several grapes, including #Syrah, & 20 months mostly neutral French oak. #SommChat

June Rodil @JuneRodil: @KeeperColl any new varieties planted that are still in "testing" stages that we should look for soon in bottle? #SommChat #chileanwine
