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 »

  • Root 1 Sauvignon Blanc 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Sweet peach, lemon verbena and asparagus greet the nose. Made in a fairly tart and lean style, this kicks off with a bright jab of acid that is quickly covered by the core of moderately rich and round fruit. Not particularly complex, this reveals subtle green citrus, grapefruit, and under-ripe melon flavors on the palate that lead to a pithy, r... Read More

  • Concha Y Toro Chardonnay Casillero del Diablo 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This Chardonnay was tasted at six years old and was amazingly young tasting. It's fruit is doing well and has a lemon, toast and honey character. Nice wine for the money. My rating-- 88. Over the hill now--Nov 2014. Don't bother. Read More

  • Montsecano Refugio Casablanca Valley Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    There was something funky going on when I opened this. Slightly fizzy and a strange aftertaste I can't really describe. Possibly a second fermentation? I tried it again the night after and the fizz and strange aftertaste were gone and it tasted a little better. However it was far from what I remember tasting back in Santiago. Read More

  • The Show Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Three thieves winery? Wha...da...hell... they stole all the good pinot and replaced it with this... Nose was pretty good, dark berries and cassis but muted. Missing a bit of a kick in the nostrils. Slightly bitter taste with a mildly acidic finish. Definitely not a "Show" stopper but not bad for a daily drinker. Read More

  • Montes Alpha Chardonnay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Hugely aromatic with lots of pineapple and mango fruit layered over a base of fine, toasty and allspice laced oak. This start out on the palate with fairly big power, then broadens on the palate in a lush, creamy style. The flavors are rich with vanilla, mango and melon, along with some creamy pineapple fruit towards the back of the palate. The ... Read More
