Winemaker Notes

Lustrous ruby red in the glass. Aromas of ripe red and black fruit aromas mingle with leather and spice, exquisitely balanced by wood notes evoking vanilla and toast. On the palate, supple tannins and a majestic structure conclude in a complex and persistent finish.

Serving suggestions: Delicious with steaks, wild game, hearty stews, casseroles and ripe, semi-creamy cheeses

"Bright ruby. Musky red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by underbrush, pungent herbs and dried rose. Impressively complex on the palate, offering sweet red- and blackcurrant, bitter cherry, mocha and licorice flavors. Dusty tannins carry through the long, spicy finish, adding structure and grip. This is balanced to age and could stand up to many Bordeaux at three times this price."
-International Wine Cellar

"In the 2005 vintage, Medalla Real again ranks as one of Chile's most elevated under-$20 wines... The nose veers between herbal and ripe, while the palate shows nothing but pure cassis, cherry and Maipo terroir. Its tight, structured and still ready to drink. Juicy more than beefy; a real treat."
-Wine Enthusiast

Santa Rita Winery Video

Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile's premier wine estates. Founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernandez in Chile's Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile.

In 1980, it was acquired by its present owner, Ricardo Claro, under whom Santa Rita has reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile's most successful and innovative estates. Initiatives include the highly successful launch of Santa Rita’s 120 Series of wines and a range of ultra-premium wines, notably the highly acclaimed Casa Real and Triple C. Wide-ranging enhancements embrace the purchase of choice new vineyards, plantings with top quality clones, improved trellising and irrigation, balanced viticulture, restricted yields, later harvesting, individual block farming, small-lot vinification, and an increased emphasis on sustainable agriculture.

Today Santa Rita exports to more than 70 countries worldwide. The property accounts for outstanding vineyards in Chile’s most important appellations - the Maipo Valley; Casablanca; Rapel; Apalta; Leyda and Curico - enabling access to diverse climates and terrain.
