"Propuesta" - 2021

Active in Chilean agriculture, grape growing and winemaking since 1740, the Echeverria family established their current vineyards and winery in 1923 in the outskirts of Molina, a town in the Curicó Valley. Here, they grow grapes from French pre-philloxera rootstocks, on their 80 ha of vineyards. Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London. This jovial light red blend seems to be from Echeverría’s more playful side, a blend of 85% cabernet sauvignon, 10% petit verdot, and 5% cabernet franc, all from Maipo Alto. The wine aged in used barrels for some 12 months, and the result is a red wine with very good tension and a lot of fruit. It’s fresh, partly because of the cool year, and also for the herbal tones it offers.
