The Garage Wine Co Lot 82 Cabernet Franc
The Garage Wine Co Lot 82 Cabernet Franc is a very convincing, fresh, expressive bouquet with pure brambly, briary black fruit and freshly tilled earth.
The Garage Wine Co Lot 82 Cabernet Franc palate is medium- bodied to full with crisp black cherry and blueberry fruit.
The Garage Wine Co Lot 82 Cabernet Franc tannins are fine and edgy, while the finish is beautifully composed and contains Margaux- like femininity – this is an extremely well-crafted Cabernet Franc, with a surfeit of personality.
Derek Mossman, his wife Pilar Miranda, and Dr. Alvaro Peña are producing 1,500 cases total per year of old-vine Carignan, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, with fruit sourced from small growers in Maule and Maipo.
Winemaking here veers towards the “natural” spectrum – all wines are fermented with native yeast, see no additions of any kind, very little new wood, and are low in sulphites.
Punch downs are by hand, and pressing is done in a small traditional basket. You may notice slight variation in bottle thickness and shape if you were to open up cases, as Derek Mossman takes recycling to the next level and actually reuses old bottles, bottling in salvaged, used wine bottles in partnership with a recycling company located near the winery.
Derek is also the founder of M.O.V.I. (Movimiento de Viñateros Independientes), Chile’s exciting, fast-growing association of vintners. garagewineco.cl
“We began Garage Wine Co. with the idea of making wine on a small scale, a personal scale, by hand with the family.
It was (and still is!) physical work, and a therapeutic complement to the hustle and bustle of the now not so new millenium. Few in Chile, back then, knew what a “garagiste” was, nor were they familiar with the gringo tradition of celebrated companies having began “in the garage”.
Viñas in Chile were large corporate affairs, named after saints and owned by clubby families with long names full of double rr’s who presided over a rather closed circle. We patented the name Garage Wine Company and went to work, quietly but surely, content to make wine barrel by barrel and selling it amongst friends and family.”
