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 situated in the Curico Valley and the rows are planted in an eastwesterly
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. The soils are alluvial in origin, clay
loam, with the presence of stone at 80cm. Vines are subjected to specific pruning
techniques, irrigation, canopy management and harvesting, which results in grapes
of optimum quality and flavour.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks for seven to ten days, at controlled temperatures of
25-28°C with selected and native yeasts at a ratio of 80/20. An extended maceration
took place for an additional three to five days, prior to 100% of the wine undergoing
a malolactic fermentation. The wine was stored in temperature controlled stainless
steel tanks prior to bottling.
A round and vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon with plum and strawberry flavours
combined with hints of red pepper and spice. The palate is smooth and well
balanced, with a fruity and long lasting finish.
Wonderful with food; especially charcuterie, roasted game, grilled meats, braised
belly of pork and Chinese duck dishes.
