Chile is one of South America's most important wine-producing countries. It is fortunate due to great climate condition for good wine grape growing harvest. Cooling effect provided by pacific ocean, moderate rainfall and hot summer. The country is located in the southern Hemisphere so the south is colder and the north warmer. Chile is isolated by the Atacama desert in the north, the Antarctic ocean in the south, the Pacific ocean in the east and the Andes mountains in the west. You have an environment similar to California which is ideal for growing grapes.
Red Chateauneuf du Pape wines make up the predominant wine export, with majority of the grapes used being the famous Grenache, followed by Syrah, Mourvedre, and even Cinsault. Characteristically big and beefy, aromatic with spicy dark fruits, and nicely acidic and mineral, red wines here have a lot of extracts.
