These wines are a product of an old plot in Apalta, which Francois Lurton has been overseeing for many years.  The wines have good aging potential, produced with great care and attention, from the selection of the grapes to the balancing of the alcohol and acidity

    Snoothrank:

    A little sweet oak greets the nose followed by some dark herbal and African violet aromas all layered over forest berry wild fruits, wild strawberries and blackberries. Rather light bodied and scid driven with just a suggestion of tannin supporting a nice core of blackberry and black currant fruit that shows a little oaky bitterness on the backe... Read More

  • Hacienda Araucano Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and a bit herbal on the nose with a sage like top note adding freshness and detail to the core of gently spicy cherry fruit. Smooth and polished to the point off this having no detail. Its well balanced and shows off some gentle spiced cherry flavors but it sort of just sits in your mouth with drying tannins that build across the palate a... Read More

  • Jacques & Francois Lurton Hacienda Araucano Clos de Lolol Colchagua Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty and perfumed with scents of french oak and vanilla framing the core of red currant and black cherry fruit. This has a fine herbal steak to it and a lightly floral top note that recalls fennel and citrus flowers. A little light on entry, this flashes a hint of white chocolate early on the palate, which is followed by a nice combination of ... Read More

  • Hacienda Araucano Lurton Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Smooth chocolatey nose with the kind of wood aromas that I like in a wine, not overdone at all. The mouth has a dry, kind of funky earth attack, with some chalkiness and apple fruit acidity in the middle, and a smooth finish that shows a hint of white pepper. Read More
