This wine is a blend of 91% Carménère, 7% Malbec, 2% Petit Verdot. The grapes come from 3 different vineyards in the Colchagua Valley: Carménère from La Capilla vineyard, Malbec from San Carlos vineyard, and Petit Verdot from El Olivar vineyard.

Deep and intense violet in colour. The nose is elegant, complex, and fruity with aromas of underbrush, black fruits, and game meat, as well as notes of black pepper (very characteristic of the La Capilla Vineyard) and blond tobacco. The palate has tremendous structure and complexity with the chalky tannins typical of the La Capilla terroir that lead to a long, persistent finish.

Country Of Origin: Chile

Viu Manent was founded in 1935 by Catalan immigrant Miguel Viu Garcia and his sons Agustin and Miguel Viu Manent. They are one of the longest established producers in the region. Initially the family focused on a negociant wine business however, in 1966 they fulfilled a long held ambition and bought the Hacienda San Carlos de Cunaco and the vineyards in the Colchagua Valley from which they had long sourced their wines. The estate included 150 hectares of noble, pre-phylloxera vines.

Today their passion for their family heritage and stewardship of the land drives them to produce wines with character that express their origin and individual growing season. Their vineyards are all located in the renowned Colchagua Valley and cover 260 hectares over 3 locations: San Carlos, La Capilla and El Olivar. They also source grapes from selected Casablanca vineyards for some of their white wines.

Viu Manent craft wines from Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier for whites and Malbec, Syrah, Carménère, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot for reds. They are highly respected and particuarly known for the high quality of their Malbecs. Operating internationally their wines have been recognised in many major international wine competitions. In 2010 they were named the most awarded Chilean winery in a survey of gold medals and trophies awarded in major international competitions by Vitis magazine.
