    Winemaker Notes

    Anka is a vibrant, organic red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Carmenere, Syrah and Petit Verdot. It is deep garnet in the glass with berries, spice and dried herb on the nose. A closer examination reveals cigar, oak, black currants, dried flowers and cherry liquor. The wine is smooth and wide with a harmonious balance in the mouth. Rich and lush, but not heavy, it has a velvety texture and well integrated tannins. 

    Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot, 7% Carmenere, 5% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot

    Anka Anka Vineyard  Winery Image
    Anka is a certified organic wine that comes from the Pargua winery and the producer of Domus Aurea. Winemaker Jean Pascal Lacaze believes that wine is only as good as the grapes from which it is made. At his Maipo Valley vineyard Lacaze grows the grapes sustainably and organically, uses the best fruit, ages the wine in individually selected barrels and blends the juice at just the right time.

    The label artwork was created by renowned Chilean artist Benjamin Lira, who took his inspiration from the word Pargua, meaning “full moon” in the Mapuche language. Like the artwork, which will change with every vintage, Pargua’s wines are vibrant, expressive, and harmonious.

    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.

    With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
