Catherine Wevar Zencovich ( Europe Manager ) Of TERRA MATER Wines, Santiago de Chile Visits Cleveland Park Wines Wed. Jan. 22nd, 2009

     It was great to meet Catherine of TERRA MATER Chilean wines ( Tel : ( 56 2 ) 4380000 Ext ; 150 , 56 (9 ) 90797034  Luis Thayer Ojeda 236 , Piso 6 , Providencia / Santaigo de Chile ) here with one of our favorite importers Theresa Morrison ( owner/president of Elite Imports with husband John Morrison ) and Ian Tarlie ( both our customer and also now working with Theresa and John ) . We had never tried the wines from TERRA MATER and I have to say that I really enjoyed them. We will have them soon here in our store.

     As a matter of fact we will have them here this Saturday when John and Theresa come to pour wines here for our customers January 31st, 2009. We will at least try one of the reds this Saturday : it may be the " Altum " Shiraz  but I cannot be sure. You should all come by and check these exceptional wines out. I think that you will concur with me. 

     They produce different levels of wines ( five in all I believe from the Paso del Sol to the  "Vineyard Reserve ",  " Limited Reserve ",  " Altum " Shiraz and " Unusual " and use an assortment of grapes, too ; Chardonnay, Cbernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Carmenere, Sangiovese, Zinfandel and Shiraz. I wish they would call their Shiraz " Syrah " and not " Shiraz ". I liked it a whole lot. Oh, the pricing is really reasonable, too for so much flavor. These are stylish, balanced, a great blend of old-world and new world. Excellent : what's not to like?

     I just talked to importer Theresa Morrison  ( ) and we've decided to pour the Shiraz Reserve bottling this Saturday.

     I will include more but here are the pictures I took. I will continue this blog once that we do our weekend tasting. Cheers,  TONY
