The wines of the Corte de Campo line represent the creativity of Vistamar. These are small productions of innovative and modern mixes, made to be enjoyed over time, in order to appreciate their quality and manufacturing.
With scores above 90+ by important international critics -such as the 92 points that Tim Atkin gave to the Coastal 2020 version, or the 93 points given by James Suckling to the Red Blend 2019 version, among others- Vistamar Corte de Campo is a line made up of three wines with innovative and modern blends, which result in a perfect balance between freshness and complexity.
The first of them, its Coastal variety, is a blend of white vines from the Casablanca Valley. Composed of 85% Chardonnay and 15% Viognier in its 2019 harvest, it is a pale yellow wine, with great fruit intensity and citrus and mineral notes, as well as exotic and tropical touches that are very typical of Viognier. It is fresh and elegant, with a suggestive acidity, and great texture.
Corte de Campo Andes Blend, made up of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, comes from the Cachapoal Valley. It is a deep ruby red wine, with aromas of ripe and sweet fruit, and hints of rosemary and cedar. On the palate, it has a lively acidity, and it is a very juicy, fresh and well-structured wine that pairs very well with roast meats with a good percentage of fat.
For its part, the third member of the line, Red Blend, is a wine that comes from the Casablanca Valley and that in its 2018 harvest, is made up of 83% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot, and is characterized by be a mixture of deep red color, with complex aromas and notes of ash, red fruits, rose petals and cassis. On the palate it is structured, fresh and elegant, with a pleasant and persistent finish.
In this way, Viña Vistamar’s Corte de Campo line is characterized by being modern wines, with vertical structures and great concentration. And this happens because Vistamar is a winery that has studied for years the terroirs where it produces its wines, basing its slogan on seeking sectors with microclimates and soil conditions that allow and respect the ripening of the fruit. For this reason, it has specialized in cold climate terroirs, areas that deliver wines with greater balance and verticality, such as the Corte de Campo line.
