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.
Even though the winter was slightly less rainy than the average, starting the season regularly. Spring continued normally to cold in September and October, with cloudy days in November and December causing shoots to grow rapidly. The cloudy days and drizzle in January made the harvest uncertain and distant. The canopy management improved the ventilation of the bunches, and the good temperatures in March allowed to reach the level of maturity. These climatic conditions favored the production of grapes with higher acidity and excellent concentration of aromas, resulting in wines with vibrant acidity, juiciness and very expressive on the nose.
Yellow straw colour with greenish hues.
The nose unfolds aromas of pineapple, loquats, tangerine and nuts.
The palate displays notes of fresh citric fruits, pineapple and soft touches of pastries, nuts and vanilla. It is a linear and fresh wine with great volume and persistence on the palate with an elegant mineral mouthfeel.
