"The intense violet color makes it a worthy representative of the wines from Los Chacayes. A wine of distinct aromatic complexity, with outstanding notes of red fruits, floral aromas of violets, vanilla and cigar. The mouth confirms the presence of black fruits like blackberries & spices. The medium structure and silky tannins are perfectly balanced with the delicious natural acidity, leading to a
prolonged finish." ~Winemaker's Notes
Finca El OrigenView all from Finca El Origen
Finca el Origen is the Argentinean winery of the Carolina Wine Brands winery cluster, the fourth most important group in Chile volume-wise, also integrated by Viña Santa Carolina (founded in 1875), Viña Casablanca, Ochagavía and Antares.
The project in Mendoza began in 1996 with the plantation of the first vineyards in Vista Flores, Uco Valley, at the foothills of the Andes mountain range. During the first years, the business was focused on commercializing ultra-premium grapes from an area that was increasingly gaining prestige until it became the most celebrated area of the country. In 2002, after achieving great expertise managing the vineyards, we started producing wines from our own vineyards, with a boutique concept and a single vineyard spirit.
