Voted by Wines of Chile as “Winery of the Year 2016”, Emiliana is one of Chile’s most exciting producers and pioneers in organic and biodynamic winemaking. Since 1998, this Chilean winery has been producing award-winning wines from almost 1,000 hectares of vineyards in prime sites including Casablanca, Maipo, Cachapoal, Colchagua and Bio Bio. Its spectacular biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from across the world. Emiliana’s innovative and natural-leaning wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.
The Rapel Valley lies with the Pacific Ocean to the West, to the east the Andes Mountains, and to the south the province of Colchagua. The climatic characteristics of this valley include frost-free springs and warm summers that allow the grapes to ripen well. Riverbed associated soils, deep alluvial clay loam. Clay provides water retention, which contributes to good grape ripening.
100% Malbec. Made with 20% in French oak barrels for 6 months.
Deep ruby-red in colour with vibrant aromas of crushed redcurrant and blackberries. Medium-bodied on the palate with silky tannin, ripe juicy berry fruits and a long, broad finish. An fruit-driven wine that is easy to drink.
This is a great choice to serve in a cheese and wine dinner party, particularly next to Cheddar, Roquefort, Emmental and Gauda. It’s also an excellent option to accompany different kinds of meats, specially beef, lamb and wagyu.
