Description

Colchagua Valley, in central Chile, is one of South America's most promising wine regions. It forms the south-western half of the larger Rapel Valley region; to the north and east of it lies the less famous but equally promising Cachapoal Valley. Some of Chile's finest red wines are made in the valley, mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Syrah.

The Colchagua Valley boasts a textbook wine-growing climate: warm, but cooled by ocean breezes and dry, but refreshed by rivers and occasional rainfall. The region's desirable terroir, combined with persistent, focused marketing has made this one of Chile's most important wine regions, along with Maipo Valley in the north. Several of Chile's most prestigious wines come from the Colchagua Valley.

Colchagua Valley is a fairly new wine-producing region in Chile when compared with the historical Maipo Valley. Most of the region's modern winemaking facilities have been constructed with wine tourism in mind, and as a result, Colchagua Valley is enjoying a growing reputation as Chile's 'Napa Valley'.

Tasting notes

Vibrant aromas of raspberry and cassis with notes of coffee, supported by a rich mouth of dark berries with a firm and long finish. Loads of ripe fruit and aged in oak for 12 months. Soft tannins and full-bodied. Great with bbq, burgers and steak.
