Producer: Château Los Boldos
Château Los Boldos was founded in 1991 and is situated 100km south of Santiago in the foothills of the Cachapoal Andes. Working with a portion of old vines originally planted in 1948, the focus from the onset has been on the production of premium wines. The estate has been transformed since it was purchased by Sogrape in 2008. Renowned soil scientist and viticultural consultant Pedro Parra (of Clos des Fous) was brought in to assess the plots and match the right variety to the different soils around the estate. The type of rootstock, planting density, orientation and the frequency of irrigation were all within Pedro’s remit, and the results are now being seen in the wines, especially since Victor Arce, previously of Perez Cruz, joined as winemaker in 2015.
intensely black curranty, with hints of spice, cherries and herbs. A very classy glass of Cab Sav that is one of the specialties of the winery. Despite being full bodied, it's balanced and fresh, and the tannins are not overpowering.
Food Matches: An excellent accompaniment to grilled or roasted meat and game dishes. It also pairs well with tomato-based pasta dishes and pizza.
