Winemaker Notes

Elegant wine with red fruits, spices and a hint of pepper. Its great tannic structure and freshness make it vibrant and easy to drink. The natural acidity make it very versatile wine that can be paired with a wide variety of food and flavors.

Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Syrah, 3% Carignan

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Cota 500 is pure Cabernet Sauvignon from Cachapoal from a warm year that saw an early harvest of the alluvial vineyards. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in used French barrels for 11 months. The wine is 13.7% alcohol, and it seems to have some more acidity than the previous year I tasted. It feels very fruit-driven, with the oak perfectly integrated with the fruit, and it has classical notes of graphite. There is a stony sensation on the palate that is more a texture than a flavor

Andes Plateau  Winery Image

Andes Plateu is inspired by the Andes Mountains. This magnificent mountain range, combines perfectly the altitude, colors, sky and terroir, delivering special and unknown characteristics.

In one of his many trips, motivated to produce a exotic, elegant, unique wines, the owner and enologist Felipe Uribe, began this project starting with vineyards at 2.600 fts to 6.000 fts above sea level. A very difficult task in Chile where the slopes are very abrupt when over 2.000 fts.

He makes only two wines from this high altitude origin, an one of them is Andes Plateau Cota 500, a bright, low alcohol and high acidity wine that is fermented with native yeast and aged in neutral barrels and 1.000 litres foudres.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
