When Chilean wine first burst onto the UK scene more than 20 years ago, we were astounded by the sheer quality and fruit-forwardness of the wines on offer. Sepa Moya celebrates the honesty, directness and sheer enjoyability of Chilean wine, in a pair of cuvées which combine Valle Central fruit with some selected splashes of higher-end cuvées from premium regions such as Cauquennes and Colchagua Costa. The two elements together are much more than the sum of their parts. The name – meaning literally, “Who knows?” – hints at the nature of the wines within. Cheeky, carefree, easy – yet made with a serious intent, resulting in an intriguing, engaging wine experience. We were bowled over when we first tried the combination of 70% Valle Central fruit with a splash (a large splash!) of Oscar’s top cuvée from the warmer Colchagua Costa region. This element brings a warmth, generosity and fullness to the blend. Fresh yet satisfying, this is textbook Chilean Sauvignon.
