Winemaker Notes

Violet, almost black. Its complex and elegant nose recalls plums, violets, berries, sweet spices and cigar box. In the mouth it is a tasty wine, with a great structure, deep, fresh, with a smooth texture, with a very good balance between tannins and acidity, and a long and persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling
Lots of tea leaf, berry and pepper character. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A ripe, rich and powerful red, with concentrated dark plum and dried blackberry flavors that are filled with dark chocolate and minerally accents. Medium-grained tannins support the lush finish, lingering with Asian spice notes. Drink now through 2020. 650 cases made.

In 1966, Don Miguel Viu Manent purchased this Chilean winery and vineyard estate that dates back to the 1800's. Since 1990, the owners have made major investments in state-of-the-art technology necessary for the production of fine wines.

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.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
