Wine Critic Reviews:

The current vintage is the 2014 Don Melchor, one of the icons of Maipo. The wine has been produced since 1987 from the best lots from their 127 hectares of vineyards in the Puente Alto appellation on alluvial terraces of the Maipo River at 650 meters altitude... This was a low yielding year...a classical Don Melchor combining power with elegance, with those refined tannins and superb balance. There is a mixture of red and black fruit and even some fresh orange peel notes...

Country Chile: As the world's seventh-largest wine producer, Chile has a lot to offer to wine adventurers such as yourself. More than twenty grape varietals commonly see use, and the environment and climate conditions of the country allow for flexible, experimental methods that make the wines that much more compelling. Interestingly enough, France's viticultural influence on Chile is greater than Spain's. Cabernet Sauvignon has recently become the most planted varietal in the region, although the unique Chilean terroir is still sensed in full force. If you're in the mood for something different, the mad scientists behind Chile's most reputable wineries are ready to impress.

Region Chile: The long but narrow shape of the country can trick one into assuming there's not much room for diversity in winemaking between Chile's eastern and western borders, but this couldn't be farther from the truth. New regions and sub-regions are being discovered and classified even now due to the deeply nuanced landscape and climate within this country. Chile has won prizes for its breathtaking, opulent, rich, sophisticated wines that somehow still find ways to improve each year. Its winemaking tradition is long considering it's a New World wine region. Combined with modern styles and methods of production, the wines produced as a result encompass the best sides of both worlds. Packed with fragrant fruit but supplemented by a herbal profile, these wines naturally seduce the harshest critics. Though the grapes grown in Chilean vineyards are generally international varieties like Chardonnay, Merlot, Carmenere, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon, it's the specific terroir, growing conditions and unique culture that make Chilean wines stand out among the crowd. Chilean viticulture is still in its infancy, but its potential is now being revealed and the wines produced here are rapidly becoming a hit in the industry. Exuberant, complex, nuanced as they are bold, easily approachable yet hardly forgotten, wines like these cannot be found just anywhere.
Type of Wine Chile Red: Whether you prefer the potency of an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon, the seductive appeal of Syrah, or the compelling puzzle of a top-notch Pinot Noir, Chile has more to offer than you can even imagine. Their wines are more than eloquent when it comes to terroir expression, and they paint these varietals in a heavenly light.
