Arboleda, which means a grove of trees, is a tribute to the more than 1,450 hectares (3,583 acres) of native forest that surround its sustainably managed vineyards.
Viña Arboleda was founded in 1999 by the Chilean vintner Eduardo Chadwick. The philosophy behind this project is to craft single-vineyard wines that reveal the purest expression of each unique terroir within its vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley.
Undoubtedly a very challenging 2020 season, presenting the driest winter of the last 50 years. The vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley had to endure an intense hydric marathon to accomplish ripeness. Warm temperatures, especially in springtime, ended the season with a slightly colder March and April. Moderate crop yield and abundant irrigation in summer helped maintain the freshness and quality of the vines.
Dense and dark purple red colour.
This wine presents a pleasing aromatic expression. It opens elegantly to reveal its aromas of dark cherries, pepper, roasted red bell pepper and some notes of roasted coffee on the nose.
The palate shows red and black fruits framed by notes that recall roasted coffee beans and some sweet spices. It has an elegant and juicy entrance with fine-grained tannins leading to an elegant finish.
