Winemaker's Notes

Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Chile's Santa Rita winery. Founded in 1880, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile.

Floresta is an innovative line of limited production, terroir-driven varietal wines, hand-crafted from the finest grapes. The Floresta line is designed to attract individuals who are passionate about discovering new and exotic world-class wines with a distinct personality. Floresta wines combine the structure of a bottling developed and matured perfectly over a period time in an expertly crafted wine produced from the finest fruit possible. In short, Santa Rita's Floresta wines reflect the very best that our exceptional Chilean terroir can offer.

"Floresta reds are always big and imposing: this cabernet is no exception. At first sip it's all black cherry flavors supported by tannic structure; then, with air, it slowly reveals nuances of spice and mint. Decant it for lamb chops."
