Emiliana is one of Chile's most exciting producers and pioneers in organic and biodynamic winemaking. Since 1998, this...



Vineyards are located in the Cauquenes zone, near the Coastal Mountains in the Maule Region, 350 km to the south of Santiago, and in one of the most traditional winemaking zones in Chile. The vineyards are dry-farmed and planted on the gentle slopes of the Coastal Mountains, with good light and extreme temperatures that allow red grape varieties to be cultivated. Winemaking begins with a 2-day cool pre-fermentation maceration at 10–12ºC. Alcoholic fermentation takes place over a 2-week period in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at 26ºC with a program of pump-overs determined by enological criteria. Malolactic fermentation takes place naturally in stainless steel tanks and barrels, where the wine then aged with controlled temperatures for 10 months (83% of the wine in four-year-old French oak barrels, 6% in French foudres and 11% in stainless steel).

Tasting notes

Ruby red in colour. The nose is intense, with a pronounced presence of blackcurrant backed up with notes of cherries and strawberries as well as hint of chocolate. Medium bodied and well balanced with ripe black fruits, smooth tannins and refreshing acidity, resulting in a juicy and approchable Cabernet.

Food match

Ideal with meat-based dishes and stews, slow-cooked beef, and pastas such as gnocchi with blue cheese.
