Winemaker Notes

Maquis Gran Reserva Carménère stands out from the rest of the Chilean Carménère because it shows a more floral and fresh side of this variety. Its a very tasty wine. On the nose it reveals intense black fruit aromas with some hints of salvia and romero. On the palate it feels very refreshing and smooth with a long and persistent aftertaste.

Blend: 85% Carménère, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Olive and spiced plum aromas are stout, but with zest and snap. A full, tightly wound palate is balanced and lively, while this tastes of savory black fruits, hoison sauce and soy sauce. A broadly textured finish is savory tasting until the final note.
TP 90
Tasting Panel

Smooth and succulent with notes of crisp plum and subtle herbs. With medium weight and considerable spice, it’s long and balanced at an attractive price point.

Maquis Winery Video

The Hurtado family has owned the Viña Maquis vineyard for more than a century, but it wasn’t until almost 20 years ago that the family decided to make their own wine out of the terrific grapes in their own backyard. They built a state-of-the-art gravity flow winery and set out to make the Maquis winery one of the great properties in all of South America.

 

Located in Colchagua Valley, the winery’s focus is on distinctive single-vineyard, estate wines, as well as producing “balanced” wines that are not over-ripe (resulting in excessively high alcohol) but also not exhibiting any of the “green” character that sometimes plagues wines picked from grapes that have not fully matured. The Maquis main vineyard is essentially an island: it is deeply influenced by the Tinguiririca River on one side and the Chimbarongo Creek on the other. These two large waterways once brought alluvial sediment from the Andes and today act as pathways for cool coastal breezes that help moderate the warm Colchagua summers, contributing to the intensity, character, fruitiness and mineral elements of the Maquis wines. Maquis is fortunate to have such a privileged location.

Colchagua Valley Wine

Rapel Valley, Chile

View all products

Well-regarded for intense and exceptionally high quality red wines, the Colchagua Valley is situated in the southern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with many of the best vineyards lying in the foothills of the Coastal Range.

Heavy French investment and cutting-edge technology in both the vineyard and the winery has been a boon to the local viticultural industry, which already laid claim to ancient vines and a textbook Mediterranean climate.

The warm, dry growing season in the Colchagua Valley favors robust reds made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah—in fact, some of Chile’s very best are made here. A small amount of good white wine is produced from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-19th century. However, the variety went a bit undercover until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Somm Secret— Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
