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.

A best buy in my book. Medium bodies with a silky mouth fell. A nose of hickory with hints of blackberry. Rich in tannins with a subtle wild berry taste. Long, lasting finish.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Another excellent value from the hemisphere where the wine runs from the barrel counter-clockwise, and where the wines are running better and better. The color is a deep garnet with a violet rim and the aromas are of currant, cedar, with a noticeable herbal whiff. From a rich, round entry to an elegant finish, this medium to full bodied wine holds enough acidity to make it an excellent foil for roasts or smoked cheddar cheese.

The medium to dark ruby-colored 1999 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is a superb value. Chocolate-laced blackberries can be found in its sexy aromas. On the palate, loads of black fruits, including cherries, blackberries, and cassis are ensconced in this admirably extracted and concentrated medium-bodied wine. It is velvety-textured, has excellent depth, and displays copious amounts of soft, ripe tannins. Anticipated maturity: now-2009.

Spicy and generous, lean-textured, with solid blackberry and currant flavors lingering on the finish. Fine tannins bode well for its potential. Drinkable now through 1997.

A youthful, crisp Cabernet, with lively fruit flavors, great balance, firm tannins and a touch of oak to add complexity. Cranberry and cherry-like flavors with an herbal accent linger on the finish. Drink now through 1994.

Produced from the best barrels of the vintage, this Cabernet has currant and red plum flavors with an underpinning of sweet vanilla oak.

Firm, focused and definitely tannic, with currant and plum aromas hiding behind an astringent front. Needs until 1994 or '95 to soften.
