Central Valley Wine

 

Valle Central, or Central Valley, is a large expanse of Chile that is one of the most significant wine producing regions in South America. It starts with the Maipo Valley around Santiago, all the way to the Maule Valley. There are many different types of terroirs and microclimates within it, as well as styles of viticulture from old school to modern. 
 
Valle Central is divided into four subregions, from north to south (and warmest to coolest):
*Maipo, the country’s most historic region, planted since the 16th century and home to the country’s oldest existing wineries. Closest to the capital Santiago.
*Rapel Valley, home to the famous Colchagua and Cachapoal subregions. 
*Curico Valley, pioneered in the 1970s by Miguel Torres and his disciples of modern viticulture.
*Maule Valley, one of the most prolific wine-producing regions in all of South America.
 
Most wines labeled as Central Valley or Valle Central can come from anywhere within these subregions Read more »

The mouthfeel is thin and not overly smooth. Overall I find this very much al... Read More

  • Valle Dorado, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2008 Bright and intense garnet red with violet hues. Beautiful and sweet with aromas of ripe plums, cheries with hints of blueberries and chocolate. Good level of acidity and a tasty finish.
