Hacienda Araucano

+ Add a winery image

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

  • Hacienda Araucano Lurton Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Smooth and balanced cocoa and spice aromas. Palate is almost sweet, with loads of candied red fruit on the attack, melting into dark blackberries and well integrated oak the whole way through. Finishes with a bit of tar. Read More

  • Hacienda Araucano Lurton Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Both tastes and looks (you have to look hard) like chocolate. Spicy and a little tart at first, with tannins that overpower the fruit, but leave a nice, if slightly strong, finish. Read More

  • Hacienda Araucano Reserva Valle de Colchagua 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Peppery and spicy on the nose with some candied blueberry fruit and a nice touch of black currant, with a minty herbal top note. A bit round on entry with a fairly polished feel thats bolstered by the woody sweetness on the mid-palate. This is bright with nice juicy fruit but that extra touch of sweetness sticks around on the finish making this ... Read More

  • Hacienda Araucano Alka Colchagua Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This is fairly sweet and candied on the nose with smoky, asphalt notes and hints of bitter chocolate and chalk over a deep coulis of astringent red fruits. This is lush with the acid almost completely hidden until the mid-palate, where it pops through the cover of fruit lending brightness to the astringent red fruited mid-palate. Theres a lovely...

  • François Lurton Gran Araucano Chardonnay 03# 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Cherry, dark chocolate, and tobacco aromas, followed by lush earth and pepper in the mouth. An instant favorite for me. Read More

  • Gran Araucano Cabernet-Sauvignon Colchagua Valley 2001

    Snoothrank:

    I was worried because the cork broke in half upon opening. I had to push the rest of the cork into the wine, then poured through a straining filter, into my decanter. Beautiful mature cab nose with great cassis, wildberries and florals. Brick red in the glass. Wonderfully balanced cab. If you can find this, get it and drink it now! Open ca... Read More
