Tasting Notes

Bright violet in colour with aromas of red fruits, prunes and vanilla. Fruity with smooth tannins and a vibrant acidity.

Producer details

Sanama Reserva wines are made at Château Los Boldos from a combination of estate fruit (younger vines) and from grapes that have been brought in from neighbouring growers in Cachapoal. The wines have nicely defined and clearly expressed varietal characters and are forward and ready for drinking. Víctor Arce, the new chief winemaker at Château Los Boldos, arrived at the estate in 2016 after previously working at Perez Cruz and for Paul Hobbs. His input will become increasingly apparent in these wines.

In the vineyard

The Sanama wines come from vineyards in Requinoa, located on the generous alluvial soils of the Cachapoal Andes Valley. They are protected from the moderating influence of the Pacific Ocean by the coastal mountains, but the influence of the Andes ensures warm days and cool nights. This provides ideal ripening conditions for the grapes, resulting in ripe tannins and attractive perfumes.

In the winery

Upon arrival at the winery the grapes were destemmed and crushed and the must underwent maceration in stainless-steel tanks prior to being inoculated with yeast. Fermentation lasted eight days at controlled temperatures of 26°C to preserve the bright fruit flavours of the grapes. After fermentation, the wine was aged for three months in French oak barrels.

Food Recommendations

Extremely versatile, a perfect accompaniment for red meat, casseroles or even vegetarian pasta dishes.
