Viña Santa Rita:
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.

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.

First Taste - Poured through an aerator, I was immediately confused by the bouquet. Overwhelming musty, basement smell, thought "corked" immediately. But then it opened up more and some oak rolled out with some other hints, including vanilla that barely came out. Color - Deep blackberry color. Taste, typical Cab Sav yet lacking the tannins. Not silky tannins but very light. I thought it was quite balanced and slightly acidic. Tart. I am going to give this one a day two try, but not a fan at first taste. WOW. After recorking and resting til the next time this wine really came into its own. The bouquet was alive and fruity, Black Currants jumped out onto the palette and the tannins were close to perfect. After reading other reviews of products of this vineyard I feel better now, this is just a wine you do not want to open and pour.

Very fruit forward, almost a little jammy, New World style Cabernet Sauvignon. I tasted black currant and maybe some blackberry in the mix.

A Chilean Cab with great bones. Rich, ripe, dark fruit & flowers on the nose, a lovingly-balanced array of green pepper, cedar, and juicy black cherry in the mouth.

The color is very dark and dense. Nose open, immediately on the jammed blackcurrant and blackberry. In the mouth, the power immediately, without the stroke of the truncheon of alcohol (14.5 °). The currant, blackberry and then ends with cocoa. A little too heavy and crushing with rare red meat, but can finish the meal to come with a chocolate cake. Tasting date: January 16, 2010 Maturity: Wait 2-3 years No cons-indication to drink now with what remains of freshness of blackcurrant. Nice to aging.

Smoke, herbal and plum aromas lead into a light-bodied, graceful Merlot that sports crushed raspberry followed by easy tannins on the finish. Drink now.

Weedy and herbal, but there are also black cherries and mocha on the nose and bitter chocolate and coffee on the palate. Finishes with toffee, smoke and herbs, offering surprising complexity in a wine of this genre.

Dunkles Granatrot, üppiger Duft von Beeren, Pflaumen und Schokolade. Angenehmes Tannin.

Pleasant mix of red and black berry fruit, with noticeable herb hints as well. Slightly firm on the finish for a Merlot, but good character. Drink now.

gehaltvoller, fruchtiger Rotwein

Bright ruby. Attractive aromas of cherry, raspberry, cola and black pepper. Sweet, supple and round, with good intensity to the straightforward dark fruit flavors. In no way complex but very easy to drink and avoiding the greenness of so many inexpensive (and expensive!) merlots. Finishes with lingering sweetness and an echo of pepper.
