Mancura, Cachapoal Valley, Chile
Located in the Cachapoal Valley, the team at Mancura have established themselves at the forefront of the drive across Chile to make wine in the most sustainable manner possible.
Their state-of-the-art winery is designed with the environment in mind. Every stage of the decision-making process circles back to their environmental impact, while ensuring there is no compromise to the quality of their wines.
In fact, Mancura is best known locally for being the first winery in Chile to get sustainability certification in all areas of viticulture and vineyard practices.
Their Etnia range is testament to their unique geographical location at the foot of the Andes. Long daytime sunshine hours allow the production of fruit-forward, bright wines. However the cool mountain air and maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean prevents the grapes from becoming overripe or confected, ensuring the resulting wines are perfectly balanced.
Etnia Merlot 2019
An inviting deep ruby red in colour, this wine is packed full of ripe blackberry and plum aromas with delicate hints of spice and crushed black pepper. The palate is succulent, soft and fruity, beautifully balanced by velvet textured tannins.
