Hacienda Araucano Reserva Valle de Colchagua 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Peppery and spicy on the nose with some candied blueberry fruit and a nice touch of black currant, with a minty herbal top note. A bit round on entry with a fairly polished feel that’s bolstered by the woody sweetness on the mid-palate. This is bright with nice juicy fruit but that extra touch of sweetness sticks around on the finish making this a bit less flattering. 85pts

Hacienda Araucano:
These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years.  The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity
