Cenit

Our Icon wine takes its name from the highest point in the sky. Every December 21, the southern hemisphere experiences the longest day of the year, the summer solstice. That is the day the sun reaches its zenith (Cenit in Spanish) over our vineyard, and we celebrate by making the final blend, which aims to express the synergy of the best characteristics of each variety selected for this wine.

Tasting Notes

Deep purplish-ruby red in colour, Cenit 2011 is fresh and elegant. On the nose it is intense with some notes of blueberry and cassis, and some hints of grey pepper by a touch of sweetness of butterscotch. This very complex and well-structured wine from Colchagua has an elegant and deep palate with delicate notes of sour cherries. Its vibrant acidity points to the long life ahead for this wine.
