Description

VIK La Piu Belle 2019

 

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.
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.

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.
After harvesting and sorting the grapes by hand, they go through a gentle pressing. After fermentation, the wine ages for 24 months in French oak barrels.
Top tip: Decant for an hour before serving or cellar for up to 20 years.
