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 purple red with ruby shades, this 2012 Cenit is intense and floral. Elegant and complex on the nose, with blueberry and cassis aromas together with hints of spices like gray pepper, all accompanied by delicate notes of violet which exquisitely complete this painting. The palate is elegant and profound. Notes of sour cherries appear to complement this structured and complex wine from the Colchagua Valley. Its vibrant acidity promises a long life for this wine.
