This Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon gets its intensity from grapes grown in volcanic soils.
What You Need To Know
Chile is one of the world’s most volcanic countries, with more than a hundred active volcanoes and many more extinct ones. Brought up from within the earth’s crust, the lean, minerally soils exposed by these hotspots are terrible for growing things like corn but fantastic for yielding intensely flavored wine grapes. Bodega Volcanes de Chile is a new winery that exploits only soils of volcanic origin for its wines. Backed by businessman and entrepreneur José Yuraszeck, Volcanes de Chile released its first vintages in 2011. They’re made by Maria del Pilar Diaz, formerly of Viña Undurraga. Pilar Diaz sourced grapes for this Cabernet from the warm Rapel Valley, south of Santiago, and blended in a touch of Syrah for spice.
