VIK La Piu Belle 2020
VIK La Piu Belle (translates as 'the most beautiful') is a homage to art, to the importance of art at VIK and the art of winemaking. The charismatic and eccentric label art is an interpretation of mythical Norse goddess Freya by Chilean painter, Gonzalo Cienfuegos.
Grape varietal & region: 51% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Carmenère and 8% Syrah. The fruit for this wine comes from a selection of VIK's vineyards in Cachapoal Valley. The vineyards have deep, porous decomposed granitic soil with good drainage. They also experience a temperate Mediterranean climate with a marine influence from the Pacific.
Taste profile: Bright magenta colour. Ripe raspberry, fresh violets and gentle lavender aromas unfurl from the glass. The round palate has dynamic tannins, a bright acidity and magnificently rich, concentrated flavours. Black cherry compote, lush blackberries, juicy red currants and plums with rich coffee and mocha nuances. A wine with an almost endless finish, imparting a memory that lasts a lifetime.
Winemaking process: After harvesting and sorting the grapes by hand, they go through a gentle pressing. 23 months in barrels, of which 45% is new Barroir oak (French barrels toasted with local oak trees). Around 15% of the wine was aged in amphorae made with local clay for eight months. Drink from 2025
