Viña Vistamar is characterized by having modern wines, with vertical structures and great concentration. And it is a winery that has studied for years the terroirs where it produces its wines, looking for sectors with microclimates and soil conditions that allow and respect the ripening of the fruit.
Continuing this search for cold climates, Vistamar reached the Maule Valley, where it found vineyards influenced by the coast and the Andes, and where the vines deliver highly concentrated grapes with a characteristic freshness. From them, the Reserva line is obtained, which stands out for having powerful, refreshing and complex wines.
The Vistamar Reserva portfolio has 6 wines. In the first place, a purple-red Cabernet Sauvignon with ruby touches, which presents pleasant aromas of maqui, blueberries and cherries on the nose, as well as spices and hints of vanilla. On the palate it is very fruity, with notes of dark chocolate and coffee beans. It has a good structure, medium body and a pleasant persistence.
The Carménère, on the other hand, stands out for its purple-red color and its aromas of fruits such as blackberries and cherries, as well as fresh herbs. On the palate it is smooth, spicy and fruity, medium-bodied, with flavors of raspberries and blueberries. It is ideal to accompany cheeses, pastas, white meats, fatty fish and charcuterie.
