Viu Manent is a Chilean winery founded in 1935 and owned by the Viu family. The 230 hectares of the estate are located in the Colchagua Valley, 180 kilometers South of Santiago.
They were a pioneer in producing the first Chilean Malbec wines. Today the winery has earned great prestige worldwide for its Malbec, which was highly praised in the International Malbec Competition held in France in 2010, where it won 4 gold medals and the “Best Wine of the Southern Hemisphere” award for its Viu Manent Single Vineyard Malbec. The estate has also been awarded among the Top 50 World’s Best Vineyards for 3 consecutive years.
The grapes for this wine come from a selection of the best sectors of blocks 1, 2, 3, and 4 of our La Capilla Vineyard near the town of Peralillo in the Colchagua Valley. These blocks of Cabernet Sauvignon average 22 years in age.
Deep, dark red in color. The nose is complex, with aromas of plums, blackcurrants, and cherries, floral notes of violets, and blond tobacco. A fruity wine on the palate, with velvety tannins and good texture and structure, leading to a pleasing and persistent finish.
