Aconcagua Wine

To the north of Santiago is the Aconcagua Valley, a small winegrowing area of just 1,098 hectares best-known for its production of red wines. In fact, Aconcagua has earned international prestige as one of Chile’s highest regarded wines. In 2004, Vina Errázuriz’s “Seña”, an iconic Bordeaux-style blend and one of the premier reds of Chile, placed ahead of both Château Lafite and Château Margaux in the Berlin Tasting, a milestone for the Chilean wine industry likened to the famous 1976 Judgment of Paris.

Aconcagua experiences a Mediterranean climate with 8.5 inches of annual rainfall and boast variety of soils dominated by clay and sand in the east and granite and clay in the west. The area is also home to the America’s highest point, Mt. Aconcagua. At 22,828 feet, the snowcapped mountain provides adequate water to the vines below.

The valley also runs along the river that stretches from the Pacific Ocean to the Andes and experiences significant Read more »

  • Vina Ventolera Litoral Leyda Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This Leyda Valley Sauvignon Blanc was tasted a few weeks back at Marquis Wines (Vancouver BC) and seems altogether the same today - if a tad more powerful on the nose. The fruit has that slightly exaggerated aspect of the subtropical antipodes with heavy lime and musk predominating. Lime also dominates the entry with a slight bark-like finish. ... Read More

  • Primus Red Blend 2009

    Snoothrank:

    For my money if you can find a blend containing a drop or two of Syrah and Carmenere with Cab. Sauv. and/or Merlot for less than $20. BUY IT. This was a very good bottle of vino. Thank you, Chile. If only I could afford to visit. 3/5/15...I believe winter will end in two days, but what do I really know about wine or weather? Read More

  • Ritual Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This Casablanca PN is one of but a few I have tasted in recent years, but an opportunity arose to taste this (I believe) Paul Hobbs production, and I was pleasantly surprised: the nose is quite forward with cherries and wet loam predominating (quite rich, actually). The palate receives a deep, dense and luscious flow of sweet cherry and red ber... Read More

  • Emiliana Sauvignon Blanc Novas 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This has medium plus intensity on the nose with a good bit of fresh cut grass, green bell pepper, lemon and spice. Good fresh acidity on the palate with lemon and lime, cantaloupe, steely minerality, more green bell pepper notes and a finish that has just a touch of yeast. Read More

  • Vina Casablanca Nimbus Carmenere Single Vineyard Valle del Rapel Chile 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and muscular on the nose with earthy, forest floor streaked fruit that shows dried fruit character and some gamy notes. Round up front but then this is oddly small in the mouth, a tight ball of polished tannins, well balanced acidity, and subtle plum, black berry, and oak spice flavors brushed gently with hints of licorice and sage. The fin... Read More
