Vina Santa Rita Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Intense ruby red. Ripe black fruit, plums and fine herbs, gracefully combined with vanilla, cloves and fragrant spices. Complex body mingles soft tannins with a rich texture.
Produced and bottled by Vinya Santa Rita. Founded in 1880 in Chile's Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile. In 1980, it was acquired by its present owner, Gruppo Claro, under whom Santa Rita has reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile's most successful and innovative estates. The Santa Rita property accounts for outstanding vineyards in Chile's most important appellations—the Maipo Valley, Apalta, Casablanca, Rapel, Leyda, and Curico—enabling access to diverse climates and terrain. Visitors to Santa Rita can look forward to accommodation at the estate's luxury hotel, the Casa Real, with its breathtaking 100-acre gardens, its magnificent museum housing a breathtaking collection of pre-Columbian artifacts, or enjoy dinner at the property's landmark restaurant, the Donya Paula.
