Winemaker Notes

This wine perfectly combines the different areas of the Rosario estates in terms of climate and soil taking the best attributes of each vineyard. Fresh fruit aromatics of raspberry and cherry from the Cabernet Sauvignon, black fruit notes in the Syrah emanating from the cool waters of the Maipo river and floral and spice of violet and white pepper from the Cabernet Franc and Carmenere combine to produce an intoxicating blend of flavor and aroma.

The wine has a ripe fruit profile style with fresh and spicy notes and specially wild aromas from the organic management that we do. The mouth is soft and with minerals tannis and both things are due to the mediterranean macroclimate with a fresh mesoclimate (high influence from the Maipo river and fresh winds) and finally the soil is volcanic with high content of minerals and high porcentage of angular rocks.

Pair with rich hearty beef and game dishes are enhanced when paired with this robust and rich wine. Pair this wine with full flavored rich dishes that need a worthy accompanyment.

Gorgeous aromas of orange peel and dark berry. Some earth. Very aromatic. Full body, layered and chewy. Shows tension and focus. Impressive. Made from organically grown grapes. Drink and enjoy.

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.

Maipo Valley

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.

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.
