StyleRich & ComplexRegionColchagua ValleyABV13.5%Vintage2016We were excited to discover this really interesting Chilean blend for our Taste of South America collection as it's a combination you don't see very often. Carmenere dominates, with dark fruits and ripe tannins. Cabernet Franc adds a lovely herbal note, while Syrah gives Lien a lovely spicy edge. It's an elegant and well-balanced wine which is drinking superbly now.

Viña Maquis is located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley between the Tinguiririca River and the Chimbarongo Creek. Both waterways act as pathways for cool coastal breezes that moderate the warm summers and have a dramatic effect on lowering 2º–3ºC. This area with deep alluvial soils and a two-meter layer of highly concentrated clay set over a deeper layer of gravel—brought by the rivers—provide natural drainage that allows the grapes to lose the green characteristics very early in the season. The waterways also help moderate extreme weather conditions throughout the year by protecting the vineyards from spring frosts and lowering the maximum summer temperatures. These features are distinctive of Viña Maquis and uncommon in the rest of the Colchagua Valley
