Crimson currants and a hint of spice

Posted by Ilona Roberts on

You may not be familiar with Carmenere but it’s a delicious red to enjoy as the seasons change. With food moving away from salads to more hearty dishes, the dark plum, cassis and currant flavours bring out the best of autumn.
Carmenere, Santa Carolina £7.99
Great with lamb and also with fish!
Strangely Carmenere comes from the French word for the crimson - the colour of leaves in autumn. Originally planted in Bordeaux, it is now the most popular grape in Chile!
