    Winemaker Notes

    Blend: 73% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Carmenere.

    Haras de Pirque vineyards, Upper Maipo valley (Sub Maipo region). The vines were planted in 1992. The parcels are selected by the special flavors and ripeness of the fruit. Special vineyard management to maximize the quality of the grapes.

    Deep red color. Layers of mint and chocolate, with a persistent hint of cherries. Very complex, ripe, deep and sweet tannins. Concentrated and velvety in mouth feel. Opulent fruit and spicy ending.

    Sauternes

    View all wine

    Sweet and unctuous but delightfully charming, the finest Sauternes typically express flavors of exotic dried tropical fruit, candied apricot, dried citrus peel, honey or ginger and a zesty beam of acidity.

    Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris, and Muscadelle are the grapes of Sauternes. But Sémillon's susceptibility to the requisite noble rot makes it the main variety and biggest contributor to what makes Sauternes so unique. As a result, most Sauternes estates are planted to about 80% Sémillon. Sauvignon is prized for its balancing acidity and Muscadelle adds aromatic complexity to the blend with Sémillon.

    Botrytis cinerea or “noble rot” is a fungus that grows on grapes only in specific conditions and its onset is crucial to the development of the most stunning of sweet wines.

    In the fall, evening mists develop along the Garonne River, and settle into the small Sauternes district, creeping into the vineyards and sitting low until late morning. The next day, the sun has a chance to burn the moisture away, drying the grapes and concentrating their sugars and phenolic qualities. What distinguishes a fine Sauternes from a normal one is the producer’s willingness to wait and tend to the delicate botrytis-infected grapes.
