Made purely from Cabernet Sauvignon, star grape of Bordeaux’s Médoc, Viña Tarapacá Cabernet Sauvignon is a lush, ripe red wine from the stunningly beautiful Tarapacá Estate – one of the oldest in Chile. With its pure cassis flavour and a touch of mint, this wine exemplifies the superb Bordeaux style reds emerging from there. It is an ideal pair for roast beef.
It pours a deep, crimson red with aromas of ripe cassis, clear notes of mint, and bell pepper. The palate is a smooth, supple cherry, and blackcurrant fruit with minty high notes.
Set in the Maipo Valley, Viña Tarapacá is one of the most beautiful wineries in the world. Not only that, their wines offer gorgeous ripe flavour and impressive value. Over 160 years old, the cellar was founded by Don Francisco de Rojas, who traveled to France in the 1840s. He returned laden with vines from Bordeaux and Burgundy, planting them in the countryside around his classic colonial style house. In 1992 new owners took over the estate and invested considerably in the vineyards and winery. They added a new humidity and temperature controlled cellar for maturing the wines, with a 4,000 barrel capacity.
