The Coyam is a wine that's synonymous with quality and is close to claiming iconic status. It's a blend that changes from vintage to vintage, made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Carmenère, Syrah, Malbec and Mourvèdre. There's an unbelievable depth and breadth of flavour to this wine which unravels generously on the palate. Tannins are well-placed and give the wine the structure it needs. Very enjoyable now this wine will continue to develop in bottle over the coming three years or more. Serve with a nice juicy steak. Fair trade - Certified Fair for Life. Certified Carbon Neutral

95 Points - James Suckling (2012 vintage)
92 Points - Jamie Goode, 'Sweet, pure and well defined with ripe black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. Nice richness and smoothness with lush, seductive fruit.' WineAnorak.com, October 2015 (2012 vintage)
17/20 - JancisRobinson.com, 'Deep garnet. Peppery and just slightly (attractively) earthy. White and black pepper, restrained dark fruit, beautifully and subtly fragrant. Subtle on the palate too, the tannins are dry and fine-boned. The finish is long and elegant. Drink 2016-2023' September 2016 (2013 vintage)
Winery of the Year - Wines of Chile 2015. The most prominent organic and biodynamic estate in Chile, the vineyards of Emiliana Orgánico (formerly VOE) are planted in three of the country’s key viticultural valleys: Maipo, Colchagua and Casablanca. The winemaker here is the remarkably talented Alvaro Espinoza. Acacia trees are grown around the vineyard to draw nitrogen from the atmosphere into the soil, and plants are grown to make homeopathic treatments which are subsequently used on the vines.
