Food Pairings for Viña Peñalolén Sauvignon Blanc
Love this wine's depth and complexity. It pairs very well with steak, as I have had on a few occasions. Notes of dark fruits, tobacco and mocha make this one of my faves.
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot has a full, earthy, dark berry aroma that transports you to Chile. Wine experts will scoff, but why do I detect more than a hint of Malbec flavor in this wine despite its absence in the blend? Is it the Maipo valley Chilean soil that transfers overlapping flavors to various grape varietals? Wine Spectator gave it 88 points. That seems about right to me. It definitely tastes better as it opens, and decanting for at least half an hour is prudent. This vintage is meant to be paired with savory meats, and sharp cheese. The best taste description would be dark berry, pepper, toasted nut, and tobacco with a balanced finish. Great value for the price. Enjoy!

Made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this is a complex and velvety wine with a soft structure, spicy tannins, and a fruity finish
External Reviews for Viña Peñalolén Sauvignon Blanc
Bright red. Pungent aromas of red currant, cherry compote, licorice and smoky herbs. Sappy, nicely focused red fruit flavors become spicier with air and are supported by tangy acidity. Finishes with good nervy persistence and a faintly bitter quality. Give this some air or a year or two of bottle age.
Dark ruby red, spice box, red fruits, good depth and concentration, medium-long finish.
Quite minty, but fleshy and balanced, displaying good dark currant and mulled plum fruit backed by a broad, toast- and loam-filled finish. Drink now.
Stylish, with mint and sage notes leading the way for a supple palate of red cherry, black cherry and currant laced with hints of cedar and mineral. Drink now through 2010.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon offers violets, spice box, and blackcurrant in its expressive nose. Supple, smooth-textured, and easy-going, this nicely balanced wine will provide pleasure over the next five years.
More Bordelais in style the Pena family adds a small percentage of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot to this Cabernet Sauvignon to round out the aromas, flavors and mouth-feel. Overall it’s a dark, brooding and balanced wine ready to stand up to any hearty dish.
Low yields and hand harvesting indicate the care given to the superior fruit from this single-vineyard winery located on the gravelly slopes of the Upper Maipo Valley. These standards extend to the wine-making process, with meticulous grape selection and aging in French oak barrels.
