Viña Santa Rita Carménère Colchagua Valley Medalla Real Reserva Especial Single Estate 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Very polished with a hefty beam of plum and violet laced with aged tobacco and a high toned vanilla note. The long finish lets mineral and herb noted to peek in.

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.

Rating 87 point. Very firm structure and good nose. This wine needs more time to develop. Keep and enjoy in 3 years. Tasted again in 2013 and now a rating of 90. Wine has developed and is much more even in taste with some tar like aromas and elegant nose. A joy to drink now.

Surprising quality for a reasonably priced wine. Lots of depth that improves with time in the glass.

chairmans' selection 11/09, drank a bottle at Majolica - really nice. Has that elusive Oregon nose that I love. Go figure.

    Great wine. Great price (9.99 Chairman's selection). Reminds me of Oregon Pinot Noir - has that earthiness.

    Tasting Notes:

    Intense ruby red. Fresh black fruits and spicy notes with an elegant rich oak. Big and flavoursome, concentrated and persistent, elegant and deep.

    Very polished with a hefty beam of plum and violet laced with aged tobacco and a high toned vanilla note. The long finish lets mineral and herb noted to peek in.
