    Garage Wine Co

    About Garage Wine Co.

    Garage Wine Co. is a small Chilean winery founded in 2001 by Derek Mossman Knapp, his wife Pilar Miranda and Dr. Alvaro Pena. Declared by the Wine Advocate's Luis Gutiérrez as "one of my favourite producers in Chile", this dynamic producer started, as the name suggests, from a tiny garage. A duo who have both incredible vision and intuition in vine growing and winemaking, they produce wines with "strong personalities" that sit "among the best produced in Chile" according to Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate).

    They set out to make wine with an identity, earning them a cult status. Making wines from a series of individual dry-farmed parcels planted to old vines, GWCo produces wines as naturally and traditionally as possible. The grapes are sourced from small local growers in Maule and Maipo. They played an important role in rehabilitating the area after the deadly 2010 earthquake. They use natural and traditional production processes, including recycled bottles.

    Garage Wine Co Cru Truquilemu 2018 (6x75cl)
    Inc. VAT: £340.07
    2018

    Garage Wine Co Cru Truquilemu 2018 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (99)

    After 20 harvests comes their first Cru, the 2018 Cru Truquilemu, which they describe as "Truqui with more stuffing." It comes from a small triangular section with a lower natural yield, with greater concentration and a darker, more brooding personality. It was fermented with more stems than the other Truquilemu and with a bit of Syrah, which adds weight, depth and texture. After fermenting pieces of the vineyard separately over many years, two distinct personalities emerged, and they have bottled them separately since 2018. Truquilemu has become more ethereal after the separation, and this is sturdier, with extra stuffing but more tension. The wine has less alcohol (12.8%, and 12.5% in 2019!!) higher acidity (7.43 grams measured in tartaric acid) and an incredible pH of 3.18, amazing parameters of freshness and restraint. This is not heavier, it just seems to have the same personality but with more layers. It was produced in a very simple and slow way, fermenting in open-top lagars with some full clusters and adding lignified stems to avoid carbonic maceration, with indigenous yeasts; malolactic took 11 months (!), and the aging in used and neutral barrel was extended over two winters. For the 2018 vintage, they filled 3,449 bottles in January 2020.

    Garage Wine Co Old Vine Pale Rose Truquilemu Lot #103 2020 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (92)

    There's more and more information on the bottle of the wines, and the 2020 Old Vine Pale now mentions rosé(!) Truquilemu Vineyard Half a hectare and DO Empedrado, an appellation in Maule. All of their labels are so very informative, fun and amusing, and reading them makes you want to drink the wine and even know and support his peasant farmers. And on this 2020, it says Cariñena Monastrell instead of the Cariñena Mataró from previous vintages. But what he told me was even better, "The world has grown up, and the proper rosé category now includes some wonderful darker rosés—including this one, exported to 10 countries. We still think it’s best described: 'first glass of a long lunch' because it makes one hungry like few wines can." Enough said! 3,812 bottles.

    Garage Wine Co Truquilemu Lot #97 2018 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (98)

    In 2018, they bottled three Cariñena-based wines from Truquilemu in Empedrado (now a DO) in Maule. The 2018 Truquilemu Vineyard, they reckon, is more focused, sultry and ethereal than ever. It comes from 1.3 hectares and fermented with more full clusters and with a dash of Syrah (around 4%) in the field blend. By taking away the part bottled as Cru Truquilemu, this has become more ethereal. The 2018, an extraordinary vintage, has less alcohol (12.8%), more flavor and, most of all, greater depth with more layers that open up with time in the glass. These wines are as much abut texture and mouthfeel as aromas and flavors, incredibly fine-grained and titillating with lots of light and energy. This is the evolution of a wine produced in the past with slightly different names, with lots 77, 67, 57 and 47. 10,127 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020 and marked with lot #97.

    Garage Wine Co Vigno 2018 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (99)

    There are three Carignan/Cariñena wines from the same vineyard in Truquilemu in 2018, and the 2018 Vigno comes from a section further down along the creek where there's terrific drainage and thus low yield and concentration. It's Carignan with smidgens of País and Monastrell in the field blend, the grapes grown by a mall farmer by hand and horse with traditional methods of dry-farming, uncertified organic for 75+ years. Like all the rest, it fermented in open-top vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in used barrels over two winters. None of these wines are about the process, they are about the place and the year. In 2018, the wine finished with 13% alcohol, a pH of 3.2 and seven grams of acidity, parameters that talk about a wine with moderate ripeness and vibrant freshness, from a cooler year in a cool part of Maule. 3,336 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020.
