The complexity and freshness of a Chilean red wine

The estate

Originating from Catalonia, the Viu Manent family settled in Chile and created a wine trading company in 1935, under the impetus of Miguel Viu-García and his two sons Agustín and Miguel.

Miguel Viu Manent purchased the San Carlos de Cunaco estate in 1966, situated in the Colchagua Valley, marking the start of a new chapter in the family's history. The completion of major restructuring work on the estate enabled the Viu Manent family to produce fine Chilean wines year after year. Bursting with flavour, refined and aromatic, the wines from the Viu Manent estate enhance the richness of the Central Valley's exceptional terroirs in over 30 countries.

The vineyard

Viu Manent reigns over a 325-hectare terroir that spreads over 3 vineyards.

The wine

VIU 1 2019 by Viu Manent is a Colchagua Valley wine made from a rigorous selection of grapes from Block 4 of the San Carlos vineyard. This century-old vineyard is located near Cunaco in the Colchagua Valley. This terroir is unique due to its sandy-clay alluvial soil, whose excellent drainage throughout the vegetative cycle is ideal for the production of a very high quality wine.

Vinification and ageing

The grapes are sorted on the vine and upon arrival at the winery, in order to keep only the best quality grapes. Destemming precedes a third sorting. Pre-fermentation maceration for 5 days at 10ºC. Alcoholic fermentation, using selected yeasts, in small stainless steel tanks, with 4 short pump-overs per day to optimise a gentle extraction. Post-fermentation maceration is followed by racking to oak barrels and tuns for natural malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 16 months in oak barrels (51%) and tuns (49%). The wine is bottled without filtration in order to preserve its concentration and character.

The blend

Malbec (86%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (12%)

Petit Verdot (2%).
