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.
The vineyards are located in Maipo Alto in the Central Valley. Alto Maipo reaches
into the foothills and produces some of Chile’s leading Cabernet Sauvignons.
Central Maipo is one of the country’s oldest and most diverse productive regions.
Rising into the Andean foothills, the Alto Maipo section ranges from 400 to 800 metres
above sea level and is highly influenced by the mountains. The afternoon sun warms
the vineyards and the cool mountains breezes that slide down the hillsides at night
create a broad oscillation between daytime and night-time temperatures, all of
which makes for perfect conditions for bold yet elegant red wines, especially the
regional star, Cabernet Sauvignon. The soils are alluvial in origin, mostly clay loam
and the presence of stone at 80cm.
The grapes were 100% hand harvested into 18kg boxes, carefully selected and then
fermented to dryness in 25,000 litre stainless steel tanks. Fermentation took place with
selected yeasts and lasted for seven to 10 days at controlled temperatures of
between 25-28°C. An extended skin maceration lasted for additional six to eight
days, followed by a 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured in 225 litre
French and American oak barrels for a period of between 10 to 12 months.
Intense aromas of strawberries, blackberries and cherries, smoothly blended with
notes of coffee and tobacco. Round and silky on the palate, full bodied with a
delicious and persistent finish.
A perfect match for steak, gourmet burgers, ribs, leg of lamb, slow- braised beef, rich
creamy mushroom dishes and blue cheese.
