Producer Note
Viña Echeverria is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the
Echeverria family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back
to the 1700s, Viña Echeverria is as much today, as always, driven by a shared
passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña
Echeverria combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with
a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce a range of over 20 quality wines from
nine different grape varieties. It has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery
status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.
Vineyard
The vineyards at Vina Echeverria are situated in the Curico Valley and the rows are
planted in an east-westerly direction, to maximise the sun's exposure. Working with a
model of micro viticulture, each plot, of no more than half a hectare, is identified
according to its terroir and microclimate and planted accordingly. Grapes are
subjected to specific pruning, irrigation, canopy management and harvesting,
which results in grapes of optimum quality and flavour. The soil is alluvial in origin,
clay loam, with the presence of stone at 80 cm. These fertile soils allow the vines to
express all their vegetal and fruit potential. The grapes are hand harvested in May,
and are normally the last to be harvested to allow for maximum phenolic ripeness.
Winemaking
Fermentation took place at 25° to 28°C in temperature controlled stainless steel
tanks, with selected yeasts. The post fermentation maceration lasted for six days,
then 100% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in
225 litre French oak barrels for between 10 and 12 months, adding oak complexity to
the final blend.
Tasting Note
Extremely rich and velvety, this attractive Carmenère combines intense aromas of
ripe cherries and blackberries, with hints of red bell pepper, dried fruits and spices.
Smooth and full-bodied, it has a round and delicate mouthful due to its ageing in
oak barrels.
Serving Suggestion
This has the intensity of flavour to match dishes with big flavours and spice: try with
curries and Mexican cuisine. Also accompanies oven roasted red meats, especially
lamb.
