Valdivieso Cabernet Franc Colchagua Valley Single Vineyard Reserve 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Laid back New Zealander Brett Jackson is very much settled in Chile - although he hasn't lost his lifelong affection for the All Blacks - and much of Valdivieso's success in recent years has been down to his efforts. Based in Lontue, the company has a wealth of vineyards and the quality of the terroir is shown by the Single Vineyard wines. The whole range encapsulates everything that Chile excels at: rich, vibrant flavours and smooth, glossy textures - and the wines deserve the multitude of gongs they have picked up in recent years. This Cabernet franc, from a single vineyard in the hot Central Valley, shows characteristic red fruits and aromatic perfume, and a lovely rounded palate.

Producing quality wines requires careful and balanced management in every stage of the winemaking process. We place tremendous emphasis on our efforts in the vineyards to ensure the best grapes, which is a determining factor in the quality and distinctive character of each wine. In the winery, we conserve the qualities of the grapes by intervening as little as possible during the vinification process in order to avoid any loss of concentration or complexity. Our basic rule for barrel-aged wines is that the contribution of the oak should complement and reinforce the characteristics of the fruit and never hide or overwhelm it. Read less
