Viña San Pedro is the second largest wine producer in Chile. They produce 3 million cases every year of their basic wine, Gato Cabernet Sauvignon. In total they own over 4000 hectares of vineyards and around the winery in Molina they have a single plot of 1200 hectares. The best wine from San Pedro is the prestigious Cabo de Horno and in between this wine and Gato we find three ranges of wines: 35 South, the Castillo de Molina and 1865. Impressive quality all over.

Viña Balduzzi

040717-4-k3-0020 Jorge L. Balduzzi, the owner and general manager and Alejandro Soto Araya of Corfo. Viña Balduzzi in Región del Maule, Chile.

The third generation of this Italian family from Piedmonte is now managing Viña Balduzzi, They were among the first to discover the exceptional conditions of the Maule Valley. The grapes are grown organically and are all handpicked. The Sauvignon Blanc is exceptional with the typical aromas of the grape. The vin de prestige, Gran Balduzzi, is made from grapes planted in 1974 (which makes them old by Chilean standard), picked very late, carefully vinified and aged 16 months in French oak. The result is a rich and concentrated wine with dark chocolate and coffee on the nose.

Viña Terranoble in Región del Maule

>> Wednesday, 9 May 2007

040717-2-k4-32-0005 Testing for volatile acidity at Viña Terranoble in Región del Maule, Chile.

Terranoble in the Maule Valley made their first vintage in 1994. It is a relatively small winery, around 100 hectares, and the philosophy is to find the right terroir for each grape variety. The yields are small; the grapes are picked by hand and the oak is used to balance the wine, not to overpower it. Their “star” variety is Carmenère, which shows a lovely spicy and fruity nose and a good balance and length.
