Producer Note
Perez Cruz is a family owned boutique winery located in the Alto Maipo. Their estate
covers 250 hectares of vines planted in one of the most sought after areas for growing
premium Cabernet Sauvignon. This red wine specialist also produces small parcels of
Syrah, Cot (Malbec), Carmenère and Petit Verdot. They also produce an elegant coolclimate Sauvignon Blanc from Casablanca. From the first vintage in 2002, Andres Perez
Cruz has seen the estate's speciality red wine amass an impressive array of awards
and gold medals. Their eco-friendly winery was built by award winning architect Jose
Cruz Ovalle, to fulfil the technical objective of fine wine production. Its wooden roof and
natural light allow thermal isolation and free air flow circulation, making it one of the
most unique wineries in the world.
Vintage
Frost, drought, summer heatwaves and the Covid pandemic all provided challenges
for Chile's winemakers in 2020. The warm, dry winter was followed by frost in early
October which significantly reduced yields. Fortunately, the temperatures warmed up
and the season was hot and dry, resulting in a short and early harvest, yielding
concentrated grapes full of flavour.
Vineyard
Nestled against the mountain foothills at an elevation of between 1,450 and 1,700 feet,
is the Liguai estate, the exclusive source of Perez Cruz wine and the home of the estate
winery. The estate is located in the Maipo-Andes subregion of the Maipo Valley, where
the vines are double Guyot trained and drip irrigated. The vines naturally produce low
yields and the grapes are harvested by hand at optimum maturity levels.
Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked and carefully selected before being cold-macerated at
7°C for 48 hours. Fermentation lasted for eight days in stainless steel tanks between 24
and 26° C. Total skin contact was 10 days with pump-overs that were gradually
reduced in volume as fermentation progressed, with daily tastings to ensure the desired
levels of extraction were achieved. Once alcoholic fermentation was completed, the
wine was macerated for a further six days, then racked and transferred to 225 litre
barrels of one, two and three years old to add layers of complexity.
Tasting Note
A beautifully concentrated wine with distinctive aromas of blackberries and pepper
with a touch of subtle smoke. Full bodied and well structured but retaining elegance,
with a lingering finish.
