The Colchagua Valley is a three hour drive south of Santiago and home to many of Chile`s finest wineries. Located in Colchagua are the fine sub-regions of Apalta and Rapel. The region is influenced by the coastal maritime breezes and micro climate affected by Lake Rapel. The Andes mountains which dominate the country tower over the valley in the distance and are the water source used to irrigate the vines. The region is reknowned for many of the finest Merlots, Cabernets and Carmenère.
The Vina La Playa estate occupies some of Colchagua Valley`s most desirable acreage on the western shores of the Tinguiririca river. Comprising 600 acres and a $10 million state of the art winery, this excellent producer is owned by the Sutil family who make superb modern fruit-driven wines from grapes sourced entirely from the estate. Exciting new vineyard development in the coastal Limari Valley, north of Santiago, is starting to produce some outstanding cool climate varietals.
Chile is recognised for producing excellent value/quality reds and this soft and supple Cabernet Sauvignon does not dissappoint. Well structured and rich with blackcurrant and cherry fruit. It is produced in the cool climate of Colchagua Valley, considered one of Chile`s best regions for Cabernet. The palate is ripe with cassis and plum flavours backed by soft, rounded tannins.
