Cornellana Estate Cabernet/Merlot 2022
Well structured approachable red, medium bodied with plummy, curranty fruit. The Cabernet gives superb depth and structure to the fleshy Merlot, a pairing that is well established in many countries, and most especially of course in Bordeaux, where, with a few other varietals, the dynamic duo account for the bulk of all red wine plantings.
Vina la Rosa was founded in Chile at the end of the 18th century by the Ossa family, who left Spain in search of new horizons. Don Gregorio Ossa travelled throughout the country, looking for the most abundant land, and bought the Hacienda La Rosa, situated on the banks of the Cachapoal River..In 1824 Vina y Bodega La Rosa was founded, with vinestocks brought from France. In 1930, Don Recaredo Ossa Undurraga took over the administration of the haciendas, and is still in charge today. The Cornellana vineyard is situated in the valley of the same name, and enjoys exceptional exposure to the sun, which, together with its hill slopes and valley plains, means an optimal ripening of very healthy fruit, which reaches the cellars within an hour of harvesting, thus preserving all their freshness and aroma.
This is very versatile wine which would accompany a huge range of foods , from simply grilled meats, to hearty beef stews and melted cheese dishes.
