Winemaker Notes

This beautiful wine has aroma's of ripe fruit with fresh and spicy notes. The annins are soft and round with a mineral component due to the mediterranean macroclimate.

This full-flavored, fruit-forward and semi tannic goes well with grilled, roasted or braised red meats as such beef, duck, lamb, etc and some veggies as mushrooms, squash.

JS 93
James Suckling

A very fresh array of spiced-pastry aromas, across some ripe red plums and berries. The palate has a very fresh, lithe and juicy feel with terrific freshness and concentration of summer berries. Drink or hold.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Dense, dark aromas of raisin and blackberry set up a full and chunky palate with a creamy texture. Mildly salty berry flavors include a whack of oak spice, while oak-led flavors settle in on a finish that tastes slightly baked and feels warm.


W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

Spicy red fruit lasts through this tight and narrow cabernet, with fl avors of black cherry, bay and eucalyptus lengthening the wine’s fresh juiciness. It’s simple and savory, built for sliced fl ank steak. Best Buy

Vina Tarapaca Tarapaca vineyard grounds Winery Image

Viña Tarapacá was founded in 1874, in the heart of the Maipo Valley. Our mission is to preserve the seal of high quality behind a wide range of wines focused on reds, today present in more than 60 countries worldwide. Tarapacá is part of the VSPT Wine Group, the second largest wine exporter and the first within the national fine wines market. The vineyard is located in the Maipo Valley, the most traditional and prestigious valley in Chile for premium red wine production. It is a 2.700 hectares property, with only 611 planted with vineyards. The Mediterranean climate fosters a warm, dry growing season, allowing for wines with big body, mature tannins and medium acidity. The soil is of volcanic origin with medium depth and mainly angular stones. Our wines begin with the most appropriate soil selection that will match the needs of each varietal to best respect its characteristics. The vineyards are properly managed with techniques that include determining the correct crop load per vine, irrigation methods, trellising style, and vigor management. This care and dedication continues in the winery, with the enthusiasm and devotion of our winemakers in every step of the vinification process, from reception to fermentation and aging, in order to produce high quality, complex, and well-balanced wines. Tarapacá wines display their maximum potential, not only in Isla de Maipo vineyards, within Maipo Valley, but also in other valleys. Our winemaking team continuously seeks out new lands in distant valleys where the different varieties best express their natural characteristics. Our winemaking philosophy is aimed at making wines that faithfully reflect Chile’s tremendous soil and climate conditions for grape growing. Our winemaking team is committed to taking maximum advantage of the soil conditions, topography, and climate from each one of the different vineyard blocks for the greatest expression of the grapes.

The Maipo Valley is Chile’s most famous wine region. Set in the country’s Central Valley, it is warm and quite dry, often necessitating the use of irrigation. Alluvial soils predominate but are supplemented with loam and clay.

The climate in Maipo is best-suited for ripe, full-bodied reds like Cabernet Sauvignon (the region’s most widely planted grape), Merlot, Syrah and Carmenère, a Bordeaux variety that has found a successful home in Chile.

White wines are also produced with great prosperity, especially near the cooler coast, include Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
