Natalie's tasting note, score, food pairings and recipes for this wine
Reviewed November 14, 2012 by Natalie MacLean
Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Santa Alicia, located in the famous Maipo Valley, is an innovative winery utilizing leading edge techniques. Methods such as microclimate research, colonial selection, extensive laboratory analysis, and controlled fermentations result in wines of exceptional purity and character. However, it is the winery's use and respect of traditional methods that elevate its wines beyond the ordinary. Hand picking early in the morning, fermentation in oak and stainless steel, and further ageing in French and American oak barrels yields wines of intense character and suppleness. |
Intense and limpid, bright red color. Pleasant aroma to black fruits and cassis, in harmony with the wood that sheltered it. Voluminous and well balanced, with delicate persistence.
