Learn more about 2008 Chile
2008 in Chile was a cool year. The white wines were characterised by their freshness and elegance and Carmenère varieties were lovely and expressive, with lots of red fruit and freshness.
Vinified in large amphorae and later aged in 100% new American oak for 18 months, this was kept in bottle for two years before release. Catriona Felstead MW - New World Buyer
Viña Roja is the name of the vineyard holdings of the famous (in Chile) Soc. Agrícola Santa Elena de Loncomilla in the Maule Valley. The vineyards were bought by the Morande family in 2000 with the objective of bringing life back into the old Carignan vines. Five years later, the project was complete and today these vines are some of the oldest in the area, dry farmed in a sustainable manner. They are over 70 years old, produce tiny quantities of grapes and are considered a real treasure of Chilean viticultural heritage. Catriona Felstead MW - New World Buyer
