Chile does Provence minus the £££'s. Refreshing and delicious predominantly from Emiliana's organic vineyards in Colchagua and Cachoploal valleys.
Pale almost Provencal-pink in colour with gentle strawberry and red cherry aromas. The palate is medium in weight with fresh summer fruits and a silky yet refreshing finish. Delicate and easy to drink.
Voted by Wines of Chile as 'Winery of the Year 2016', Emiliana are one of Chile’s most exciting producers and pioneers in organic and biodynamic winemaking.

Emiliana’s innovative and natural-leaning wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.
The Rapel Valley lies with the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Andes Mountains to the east, and the province of Curicó to the south. This area is particularly well suited for growing Carmenère, Syrah, and Cabernet Sauvignon. This is a transversal valley of Chile’s central zone with unique climatic conditions, including four clearly defined seasons and a unique blend of maritime breezes and Andean winds. The hand-picked grapes were transported to the winery and selected from a conveyor belt to ensure maximum quality. Vinification took place in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts. The finished wine was fined using bentonite and cold stabilized to prevent the formation of tartrate crystals and 1 and 0.45 micron cartridge filters were used at the time of bottling.
Ideal as an aperitif or with sushi, creamy cheeses, and ethnic foods, among others.
