Description

Poised, elegant and intensely rewarding with flavours of blackcurrant, redcurrant, and white pepper playing against undertones of cigar box and cedar. With great complexity and superb balance, it’s lovely now but try squirreling a few bottles away for a couple of years. You’ll be glad you did.

MEET THE PRODUCERS

Maquis

Viña Maquis has been associated with the production of wines since the 18th century, a time when the vineyards belonged to the Jesuit congregation, Compañía de Jesús, located in the Colchagua Valley, which used the land for winemaking.
During the 19th century, Viña Maquis belonged to two former Presidents of Chile, Federico Errázuriz Zañartu and Federico Errázuriz Echaurrren, who organized cabinet meetings in this valley. So that the ministers could reach the sector, bridges were built with bricks, which are currently part of the cultural and historical heritage of the area.
In 1916 Viña Maquis was acquired by the Hurtado family. Then in 1926-1927, Engineer Ignacio Hurtado, at only 23 years old, built the first wine-making and ageing cellar of Viña Maquis. The winery, in force until today, started the production and commercialization of high-end wines.
In 2002, after a few decades directing and designing the commercial strategy of the winery, the Hurtado family began the construction of a new wine-making and storage cellar. A state-of-the-art and sustainable winery, which facilitates the elaboration of wine so that it can express the best of each variety grown in the Colchagua Valley.
Much of the winemaking process in Viña Maquis continues to be very artisanal and manual. The objective is that the grape is intervened as little as possible so that it can show its full potential through the care and professionalism that only the Viña Maquis team can deliver.
