This Chilean blend is an award winning wine that is loved by Robert Parker amongst others. We loved it so much that we would like to share some of this wine’s flavorsome details.
Ninquén (nin-ken), meaning ‘Plateau on a Mountain’, is the name of this unique Estate which is the first of its kind in Chile. Antu which in the Mapuche or “People from Earth” language means “Sun” is a range of wines inspired from this ancestral tribe, renowned for its perseverance. Antu Ninquén – “Sun of the Mountain”- is a premium wine that best sums up our philosophy: Create and show only the best from our land.
Appearance: Deep ruby red.
Aromas: A big core of ripe black cherries and blackberries, complemented by nicely melted touches of vanilla and cedar from a well integrated ageing oak
Flavours: Nice acidity over very ripe black fruit. As always, this wine is muscular and powerful, full of ripe and nicely textured tannins combined with the cedar from the oak ageing giving to this wine a lingering but creamy finish
Varietal Composition: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Carmenère
Appellation: Colchagua Valley
