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.

  • Montes Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Limited Selection 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Really very attractive on the nose with nicely layered roasted green chiles, a hint of jalapeno, cut grass ands sweet lemon and lime aromas. In the mouth this displays big acids up front supporting fresh and nuanced flavors of grapefruit and guava with some of the green herbal qualities emerging aromatically in the mouth. the texture is medium f...

    Better IMO than most domestic Chardonnay's at a similar price level. Not light, but not a high alcohol, high price, stick of butter. Read More

On entry, there is anise, more grapefruit and cake spice; finish is warm and long. Typical of the region but more interesting. 88 points. Read More

  • Vina Leyda Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Classic Chardonnay on the nose with well judged oak adding vanilla and spice note to the core of pineapple and citrus fruits that pick up a touch of mango with air.
