Winemaker Notes

Carmenère, widely cultivated in Bordeaux in the early 18th century, was brought to Chile where it expressed great affinity to the country's terroir. It adapted so well to the soils and sunny climate of Chile that it was often called "Chilean Merlot". Merlot is actually a misnomer since it is a noble variety in its own right. Our Arboleda 1999 Carmenère captures this grape variety's finest attributes with its intense color and deep, spicy fruit character. Its aroma is highly complex, with unique notes of spices, mocha and paprika intermingling with vibrant layers of plum and berry. On the palate the good initial acidity gives way to ripe and well structured tannins, culminating in a long finish. The wine was handcrafted at the state-of-the-art, gravity-flow Arboleda Winery, the first new winery that Robert Mondavi has built outside of California. The word Arboleda means "grove of trees" and, in developing the vineyard and winery, we have preserved as many trees and indigenous plants as possible to protect the natural ecosystem.

Arboleda wines were born in 1999 as part of the shared dream that inspired Robert Mondavi and Eduardo Chadwick to realize the potential of Chile as a world class producer of fine wines. The name "Arboleda" in Spanish means "grove of trees" and is a tribute to the native Chilean trees that have been preserved within the vineyards that produce the Arboleda grapes. The source of the Arboleda grapes comes from two self contained estates within the valley. A stunning hillside property some 40kms inland was acquired and planted in 2000 with a selection of red grape varieties. This property was named "Las Vertientes" due to its natural springs of water. Arboleda red wines aim for complete ripeness, full bodied with high concentration of fruit, complexity and balance.

Arboleda white wines aim to be fresh, crispy with high acidity and intense aromatics. Therefore the vineyards were planted during 2005 in the proximity to the sea, only 14 kms from the Pacific Ocean in a property called "Chilhue", the place of sea gulls in native Mapuche indian language.
