The chilean Gran Reserva and music: the perfect pairing

If you think you enjoy a glass of wine even more with a special song, you’re right!

A British-Chilean study concluded that music, by stimulating different parts of the brain, can directly influence the perception we have of the taste of a wine. Why don’t we put this claim to the test? Choose your favorite variety of Gran Reserva Tarapacá and follow these musical recommendations to create an outstanding pairing.

Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine, which has aromas of black fruit, an excellent structure, balance, and soft tannins, can be enhanced with powerful music. That’s why Gran Reserva Tarapacá Cabernet Sauvignon is perfect for pairing with songs like “Carmina Burana” by Carl Orff; “All Along the Watchtower” by Jimi Hendrix; “Honky Tonk Woman” by The Rolling Stones; “Won’t Get Fooled Again” by The Who; or with something of the style of Paul McCartney and Wings, like “Live and Let Die”. Perfect to end an intense day!

If you want to take a journey of a different kind, where you’ll find fresh and expressive aromas and a spicy touch, uncork this wine and play “Metamorphosis” by Philip Glass. This powerful song will do justice to this Chilean wine.

A classic wine with diverse layers like this deserves to be appreciated calmly in order to discover its notes of black fruits and spices one by one. With songs like “Nessun Dorma”, by Puccini, sung by Luciano Pavarotti; or “Chariots of Fire” by Vangelis.

One of the most expressive Chilean wines. It goes hand in hand with rhythms that lead your soul to flow freely. For that reason, we recommend that you taste Gran Reserva Tarapacá Merlot with inspiring songs like “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay”, by Otis Redding; “Easy” by Lionel Ritchie; “Heartbeats” by José González; and finish with “Over the Rainbow” by Eva Cassidy.

Gran Reserva and music

To enhance the upbeat and citric aromas of this wine, it’s necessary to speed up the rhythm a little with something that motivates us and makes us raise the glass with a positive spirit. A great accompaniment to make you appreciate its full body would be “Atomic” by Blondie; or something more modern like “Rock DJ” by Robbie Williams or “Spinning Around” by Kylie Minogue.

Sauvignon Blanc
To enjoy this wine, which has herbal aromas and citric touches, we invite you to accompany it in one of two ways: with the third movement of “Summer” by Vivaldi or “Sur le Pavé” by Holden. You’ll see that the joyful effect they create is just dazzling.

As you can see, there’s music for all tastes, just like the varieties of Gran Reserva Chilean wines, so there will always be a time and a Gran Reserva Tarapacá for a unique pairing. Cheers!
