Valdivieso Eclat Mourvedre/Carignan/Syrah 2008

Member Review by Jake Pippin:

Valdivieso originally made sparkling wine, back in 1879, the first producer in South America to do so. Though they still produce sparkling wine, one of their specialties is Carignan and Blends. This wine is 65% Carignan, 20% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah, an unusual blend for Chile. With the grapes coming from 75-100 year old vines this was a treat. Deep blue and red fruit was evident but were rather huddled. I would want to give this a bit for time to really show it's potential.

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
