Winemaker's Notes

"Consultant supreme Alvaro Espinoza has made a winner in this organic blend of 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet. The nose is nicely roasted, with big, creamy fruit and strong chocolate notes. The palate is thick and balanced, with smooth flavors of black fruit and milk chocolate. All told, it's meaty and huge, but not overdone and the tannins are pure velvet."
-Wine Enthusiast

"The second vintage of Sincerity is tight and firm. Under the dark mineral scent of schist, you can pick out the flavor of sweet black berries and strawberry jam, while the tannins keep the tension with their muscular texture. . . . a delicious red Alvaro Espinoza crafted at Santa Emiliana's biodynamic vineyard in Los Robles Estate, in the northern hillsides of Colchagua Valley."
-Wine & Spirits

Deep red in color, the wine has an intense berry and black-fruit aroma, with some coconut and vanilla notes as well. Elegant on the palate, it offers concentrated black fruit flavors. The wine is well structured with great concentration, round and soft tannins, and a long finish. 75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon

The production of certified organic grapes by St. Emiliana is done with the purpose of respecting the natural process in the yearly growth cycle of the grapes, and to protect and isolate the vineyards from any elements that do not belong to its natural environment.

Through this system, the terroir can reach its maximum expression and identity, which is transferred to the wine through the grapes. The search for quality is the companion of organic agriculture in the sense that yields are normally lower because the vines need to go deep in the soil to get adequate nutrients.

At Viñedos Organicos Emiliana, quality is the constant, from selection of the land to cultivation, harvesting and finally, to the most meticulous details of vinification and storage. At VOE, quality, respect for man and nature are the pillars of our work.

Learn About Chile

(CHEE-lay) Long and thin, Chile has a lot of land north to south. The wine region here is a series of districts based near Santiago. The vineyards are protected by the Pacific on the west and the Andes mountains on the east. This could help explain why the climate changes more from east to west than north to south - also why the country has remained phylloxera free....
