Winemaker Notes

Primus The Blend is produced in the priviledged location of the Apalta valley, Chile. An expressive blend that brings together the diversity of each of our estates and the best adapted varieties. Cabernet Sauvignon is the basis and provides structure, while Merlot adds red fruit and vitality on the palate. Carmenere delivers density and smoothness combined with the soft and complex finish of the Petit Verdot. Cabernet Franc adds elegance and persistance. Ideal with grilled or baked meat with thick sauces and gorgonzola cheese.

A generous and rich red with round and chewy tannins. So much lovely ripe fruit with currant and hints of walnut character. Full and beautiful. Gorgeous wine. 40% cabernet, 25% merlot, 24% carmenere, 8% petit verdot and the rest cab franc. Drink or hold.

This superb Bordeaux blend is a cuvée of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Merlot with a little Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot for company. Elegant, seamless and smooth, with textured tannins, aromatic oak and layers of grassy, dark berry fruit. 2018-27. Alcohol: 14%

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
I found nice integration and balance in the 2015 Primus The Blend, which consists of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carmenere, 25% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 3% Cabernet Franc from Colchagua. It matured in French barrique for 18 months. The oak is nicely folded into the fruit, and the aromas and flavors are focused. It has fine-grained tannins, good freshness and overall balance.

Primus Sofía Araya - Winemaker Winery Image
Primus is a leading brand in the Chilean premium segment and a preeminent example of Chilean quality capabilities. The name Primus is Latin and means “the first” or “the first among its peers”, and for good reason. The winery was founded more than 20 years ago by Agustin Hunneus. It was truly a pioneering brand as the first blend of the signature red grapes of Chile: Cabernet and Carmenere. Today, The Blend is still the standard bearer for Primus, and has been joined by two single varietal wines: Primus Cabernet Sauvignon and Primus Carmenere. Fruit is selected from the most renowned areas in Chile for red varieties: Apalta, a sub-region Colchagua, and Maipo. These are food wines, known for their balance, elegance and freshness. Aging in oak barrels and foudres gives elegance and finesse to the wines. All farming practices are organic.

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.

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.
