Santa Rita Sauvignon Blanc 120 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

This medium to dark ruby-colored Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Real was produced from 32-46 year old vines. It bursts from the glass with violets, lilies, blueberries, cherries, blackberries, and buttery oak. Its Margaux-like personality is medium to full-bodied, rich, and lush. A myriad of ripe dark fruits are interspersed with toasty oak in this intense, powerful wine. Its character brings to mind a hypothetical blend of Bordeaux and Napa Valley, with an elegantly structured, juicy core of fruit being married with a plush, muscular, opulent quality. This wine's impressively long finish exhibits loads of tannin, yet they are ripe and supple.

Santa Rita was founded in 1880, by a distinguished entrepreneur of those times, Mr. Domingo Fernández Concha in the area of Alto Jahuel where the main installations of the winery are currently located. From the very beginning, he introduced fine French varieties, winemakers and the most advanced winemaking techniques. From the end of the XIX century until the mid 70´s, Santa Rita developed under the ownership of Mr. Vicente García - Huidobro, father of the famous Chilean poet Vicente Huidobro Fernández. In 1980, the Grupo Claro acquired the Santa Rita property, giving a strong impulse to the enterprise in all of its scope, introducing great technological improvements and wine elaboration techniques unknown in Chile at that time. At the end of the 80´s a great expansion period for Santa Rita starts, sustained by the great momentum experienced by its exports and the excellent reputation acquired by its products, which obtained important awards and worldwide recognition.

Very dense, with espresso, bittersweet dark chocolate, dark currant and tar flavors buttressed by thick, loamy tannins. Notes of tobacco and mineral flash on the finish, which is muscular but supported by ample acidity. A brute now, so cellar. Two ot... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Maipo in Chile. 2001 Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Casa Real 750ml
