Reserva de Propiedad, Haras de Pirque, Maipo Valley, Chile 2019
Regular price £13.00
Haras de Pirque
The magnificent Haras de Pirque estate occupies a privileged position at the foot of the Andes, in Chile’s Maipo Valley region. The lovingly tended vineyards are on largely north-facing slopes, from the middle of which rises a unique horseshoe-shaped gravity-flow winery, inspired by the estate’s other claim to fame: as an internationally renowned thoroughbred breeding farm.
The wine side of Haras de Pirque is now owned by Italy’s Antinori family, their chief winemaker Renzo Cotarella bringing his own elegant sensibility to bear while respecting the character of this very particular terroir.
Reserva de Propiedad 2019
Minty, herbal notes, so typical of Maipo stand out on the nose whilst the palate is a riot of fresh red fruits and ripe cherries. Tannins are soft and supple giving the perfect counterpart to the juicy, fresh finish.
