Natalie's Score: 92/100

Arboleda is a boutique winery nestled in the heart of the Aconcagua Valley that handcrafts six exclusive single vineyard wines, each from a unique terroir, according to the back label. The wine's name, Arboleda, is a tribute to the 1,450 hectares of native forest that surround the winery's sustainably farmed vineyards. The 2015 vintage is elegant, smooth and full-bodied with fleshy black plum aromas and flavours. Generous and mouth-filling. Great price for this quality from Eduardo Chadwick, well respected within the Chilean wine community and beyond. Long, satisfying finish. Pair with grilled lamb.

Carmenère food pairings: grilled lamb, beef braised in a mole sauce, hearty stews.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An elegant Carmenère crafted from sustainably farmed grapes grown at a boutique winery in Chile's Aconcagua Valley. Full-bodied, aromatic and smooth, with ripe plums and balanced spice throughout. Pair with meat stews, lamb or beef.
Tasted March 2018
Arboleda (2015) is an elegant, full-bodied Carmenère from Chile's Aconcagua Valley with grapes sourced from the village of Hijuelas, 100 kilometres north of Santiago . Great price for this quality dry red from Eduardo Chadwick. According to the back label, the wine's name is a tribute to the 1,450 hectares of native forest that surround the winery's sustainably farmed vineyards. Look for smoky herbs and tomato leaf on the nose, spicy with ripe dark fruit flavours on the palate. Drink now. - Community Wine Reviews
