Emiliana Red Blend Colchagua Valley Novas Carmenère Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Rafael and José Guilisasti were visionaries in the late 1990s when they saw that the market was beginning to change and that consumers worldwide were becoming more aware of the products they were consuming, not only for health reasons, but also with respect to their social and environmental impact. They therefore asked winemaking consultant Alvaro Espinoza to join them in the process of converting a conventional Chilean winery into one that was 100% organic and biodynamic with the firm objective of creating wines of the highest quality with great respect for nature. Now, after more than a decade, what began as a dream has become a complete portfolio of wines backed by major national and international awards and recognition and that meet the new need of today’s consumers. Emiliana Gê presents an intense violet-tinged, plum-red color. The elegant nose expresses a wonderful harmony of ripe black fruit, black currant, berries, and forest fruits delicately melded with the oak, which lends soft mineral notes, toffee, and chocolate. The palate features soft, well-rounded tannins, and a long finish full of character and personality. The loaded character of this wine makes it one to definitely keep in the cellar for a few years. This wine is ideal to pair with hearty meals, so try with grilled or roasted red meats, game birds or rich stews.

Blueberries with a little licorice on the nose. The wine is spicy with bright fruits. Finishes on licorice with a slight medicinal quality.

“G” is Chile’s only certified biodynamic wine, now in its second vintage. Alvaro Espinoza makes this syrah blend from Emiliana’s estate vineyard in eastern Colchagua. At three years of age, this is still extremely youthful, with wild black fruit, sweet spice and chocolatey tannins. The wine is so powerful that it remains impenetrable hours after the bottle is first opened. Cellar it for five years or more to let the forceful structure relax. It should age with grace.
