Located in the famous Maipo Valley, Santa Alicia is an innovative winery utilizing the latest cutting-edge winemaking techniques. Methods such as microclimate research, colonial selection, extensive laboratory analysis, and controlled fermentations result in wines of exceptional purity and character. However, it is the winery’s use and respect of traditional methods that truly elevate its wines to the next level. Hand picking early in the morning, fermentation in oak and stainless steel, and further ageing in French and American oak barrels yields wines of intense character and suppleness.
Violet colour with an infusion of orange hues. Aromas of spice, black pepper, black fruit, ripe cherries and cinnamon can be detected. The Santa Alicia Gran Reserva Carmenere 2011 is balanced yet intense, with notes of mocha, vanilla and toast. Smooth, with great volume and persistence in the mouth. (95% Carmener, 5% Syrah).
