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
Viña Echeverria's vineyards and winery are located in Molina in the Curico Valley.
Situated on the 35th parallel south, between the towering Andes mountains and the
cool Pacific Ocean, this privileged viticultural zone with its cold nights and warm dry
days, intense sunlight and long growing season is ideally suited to produce healthy
vines and grapes. The cooling influence of the oceanic breeze, allows both red and
whites grapes to achieve outstanding fruit aromas and exceptional colour
concentration. 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 80cm.
Winemaking
The grapes were manually harvested and carefully selected by hand. Fermentation
took place in 12,000 litre open stainless steel tanks over a period of 10 days, at
controlled temperatures of between 25 to 28°C. Selected yeasts were used during
the fermentation. An extended skin maceration followed, lasting for eight days, in
order to extract the desired levels of colour, fine tannins and aromatics. The wine
then went through 100% malolactic fermentation, before being aged in 225 litre
French oak barrels for between 12 and 14 months.
Tasting Note
The Family Reserva wines are created from the best grapes, carefully picked and
selected by hand. This opulent Cabernet Sauvignon combines aromas of ripe
cherries and plums, with hints of dark chocolate, leather and delicate smoky notes.
A full bodied wine, with round and mature tannins and a smooth persistent finish.
Serving Suggestion
Delicious with barbecued red meats, roasted and grilled beef; slow roasted lamb;
pastas with rich sauces and mature cheese.
