In 2018, they bottled three Cariñena-based wines from Truquilemu in Empedrado (now a DO) in Maule. The 2018 Truquilemu Vineyard, they reckon, is more focused, sultry and ethereal than ever. It comes from 1.3 hectares and fermented with more full clusters and with a dash of Syrah (around 4%) in the field blend. By taking away the part bottled as Cru Truquilemu, this has become more ethereal. The 2018, an extraordinary vintage, has less alcohol (12.8%), more flavor and, most of all, greater depth with more layers that open up with time in the glass. These wines are as much abut texture and mouthfeel as aromas and flavors, incredibly fine-grained and titillating with lots of light and energy. This is the evolution of a wine produced in the past with slightly different names, with lots 77, 67, 57 and 47. 10,127 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020 and marked with lot #97.(LG)
The 2018 Cariñena Truquilemu Vinveyard Lot 97 has a 4% dash of Syrah from Empedrado, Maule, and spent a few winters in barrel. Dense, vivid purple in color. The nose offers sweet and sour cherry, plum and liqueur along with hints of licorice and saffron. Pulls off a rare combination of acidity and ripeness, the meaty but compact flow displaying excellent tension and long-lasting flavor. A lovely wine. (JH)
