Chile’s Maipo Valley is celebrated for making
textbook, balanced Cabernets with vibrant
but elegantly structured fruit.
What You Need To Know
Founded by vineyard owner Ricardo
Peña and his wife, Isabel, Peñalolén was created to showcase wines
of distinction made from grapes they purchase from like-minded
growers. To that end, they enlisted a young French winemaker from
Bordeaux, Jean-Pascal Lacaze, who is highly regarded for his ability
to mold Cabernets of impressive depth while managing to
tame aggressive tannins. The fruit for this wine comes from the
Alto Maipo, lofty vineyards on the gravelly slopes of Chile’s
famous Maipo Valley. The vineyards are low-yielding and are handharvested
to obtain fruit with high concentration and plush textures.
