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.
Principally from the San Carlos vineyard, located near Cunaco in the Colchagua Valley. The Cabernet Sauvignon blocks were planted more than 100 years ago.
This ruby-red wine has glints of violet. On the nose, the aromas are fruity, principally red fruit like tart cherry and raspberry. There are also aromas of spices and subtle notes of cacao. On the palate the wine is fresh with good balance, medium body, and smooth, rounded tannins that lead to a pleasing finish.
