Vina tarapaca Gran reserva etiqueta azul 2020


The Viña Tarapacá Gran Reserva Etiqueta Azul 2020 is a distinguished red wine from the Maipo Valley, Chile. It is known for its deep ruby color and a complex array of aromas. This wine offers a blend of raspberry and cherry notes from Cabernet Sauvignon, contributing to its freshness. These are complemented by additional layers of tobacco, plum, and cassis. The Syrah component, originating near the Maipo River, adds aromas of cherry and blackberry, along with floral notes and subtle hints of black olive. This blend benefits from the unique climate of the north-facing vineyards of Tarapacá Estate, where high sunlight meets cool nighttime breezes and the cold waters of the Maipo River, helping to moderate the high daytime temperatures. The significant temperature drop at night contributes to the wine's aromatic complexity and balance. The Cabernet Sauvignon from the Mirador series introduces some acidity, influenced by sandy soils with angular stones and gravel. The Syrah, from mineral-rich volcanic soils, adds body and minerality to the blend. Moreover, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc from the Piedemonte series enhance the wine's volume and maturity, creating a well-rounded, smooth, and balanced experience with a great finish.
