Altair Meritage 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Winemaker: Anna María Cumsille. 100% of the wine was aged in new French oak barrels for 15-18 months. The 2003 Altaïr is dark ruby with an excellent perfume of pain grille, spice box, red currants and black currants. This is followed by a supple wine with light tannins made in an elegant style. The flavors are ripe and the oak, tannin and acidity are well integrated. Give this Bordeaux look-alike 2-3 years of bottle aging and drink it through 2025. (The Wine Advocate)

Beneath the skies of Alto Cachapoal cool breezes from the foothills of the Andes glide across rocky soils, where the expertise of the Old World and the savy of the New combine to produce an exceptional wine. A wine as brilliant as the star that lends it its name: Altaïr Altaïr was designed to be a Chilean wine of consequence; a star as impressive as the light of one of the brightest constellations in the heavens. Nothing has been compromised to achieve this goal. Hectares planted are few and the yields are sparing. The fruit is of the highest quality and complexity. The latest in integral vineyard management techniques have been adopted and world-renowned specialists have been consulted to ensure excellence in every step. Read less
