The Producer



The Grape



The most famous red wine grape in the world and one of the most widely planted.

It is adaptable to a wide range of soils, although it performs particularly well on well-drained, low-fertile soils. It has small, dusty, black-blue berries with thick skins that produce deeply coloured, full-bodied wines with notable tannins. Its spiritual home is the Médoc and Graves regions of Bordeaux where it thrives on the well-drained gravel-rich soils producing tannic wines with piercing blackcurrant fruits that develop complex cedarwood and cigar box nuances when fully mature.

The grape is widely planted in California where Cabernet Sauvignon based wines are distinguished by their rich mixture of cassis, mint, eucalyptus and vanilla oak. It is planted across Australia and with particular success in Coonawarra where it is suited to the famed Terra Rossa soil. In Italy barrique aged Cabernet Sauvignon is a key component in Super Tuscans such as Tignanello and Sassicaia, either on its own or as part of a blend with Sangiovese.

The Region

Central Valley

Central Valley, a 1,000-km-long plateau, is the powerhouse of Chilean wine. Grapes grow well and ripen easily on this fertile flatland that benefits from natural irrigation (rivers carry melted snow from the Andes) and a generally Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers. 

There are distinct climatic and soil variations between the individual regions in the valley and the result is a great diversity and some of the most exciting wines in Chile. The Central Valley regions are (from north to south) Rapel, with its sub-regions Cachapoal and Colchagua Valleys, Curico, and Maule.

Central Valley blends combine fruit from different areas for well-rounded, silky smooth wine styles that consistently offer some of the best-value in the world. For those who favour ripe styles, look no further than the warm area of Colchagua. Up-and-coming areas like Maule are also starting to demonstrate real potential and complexity.
