Winemaker's Notes

With a deep ruby color, this is a wine in which the menthol, red fruits, raspberries and blackcurrants are well integrated with the vanilla of French oak barrels of second and third use. It has an attractive acidity which gives the wine a fresh character. It will continue to develop very well for several years, as it has enough fruit and tannic structure.

Ideal for red meats, pasta and dishes with rich sauces.

Alcohol: 13.2%

Learn About Peteroa

Traditionally, wine has been one of the key enterprises in Chile. In 1930, Don Jose Canepa founded a winery business which has been in family hands ever since.

Although the winery focused its attention on the Chilean market in the beginning, it is now exporting to more than thirty-five markets all over the world.
