  1. Presented by Pedro Parra, PhD Wine Tasting led by Sandy Block, Master of Wine Moderated by Mark Oldman, Best-Selling Wine Author

  2. Terroir Expertise • Master of Science, Precision Agriculture Montpellier, Ph.D in Terroir in Paris. Form in Burgundy and Medoc • More than 20,000 soil vine profiles • Research: Tasting WNE – SOIL • Experience in Chile, Argentina, Tuscany, • Vosne Romanee – Echezeaux – Nuits, Sonoma-Napa, • Uruguay, Armenia, Okanagan, Mancha • Partner at ARISTOS, Clos des Fous and Altos las Hormigas

  3. Atacama desert Paris • CHILE in Two Words • A GEOLOGICALLY fractured land • MOUNTAIN terroir, very COMPLEX geology • COMPLEX climate • Young industry, not yet MATURE • Last 10 years was focused on the EXPLORATION of new terroirs • The best is yet to come… 1.750 km Sevilla Osorno

  4. Gravel Old Vines never irrigated, Itata Bio Bio Elqui Valley, North of Chile Granite Toconao, Atacama Desert, 2.980 mt Lo Abarca, San Antonio – Leyda Valley Andes Mountain, Maipo Valley Malleco – Traiguen, South of Chile Limestone Schist

  5. THE WINES

  6. SAN ANTONIO LO ABARCA THE WINE CASA MARÍN CIPRESES VINEYARD 2011

  7. The Heart of Cipreses Vineyard • Pioneering vineyard in Chile for cold coastal • vineyards (The true Sonoma coast?) • CLIMATE: Very cold-fresh, cloudy, windy climate in front of the sea • SOIL: a blend of GRANITE and LIMESTONE. Steep slopes, different aspects and extremely low yields • Total production is about 4,500 cases

  8. ALTO MAIPO THE WINES SANTA RITA CASA REAL 2009 CONCHA Y TORO DON MELCHOR 2008

  9. TERROIR OVERVIEW of ALTO MAIPO CLIMATE is fresh to fresh-warm Andean climate. Important thermic oscillation. Long growing cycle, few rains in the growing season SOIL: Complex alluvial system, at least four terraces. In general, great terroirs are older terraces As in the left bank (same geological system), wines used to be Cabernet Sauvignon blends, sometimes with Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot or Syrah One of the oldest and FAMOUS Chilean wine regions. Top terroir

  10. The Heart of Casa Real • One of the oldest Cabernet Sauvignons from Chile • CLIMATE: Fresh-warm Andean climate. Very slight slope facing west • SOIL: Complex mix of alluvial third terrace of the Maipo River + colluvial erosion from the “Ratones” Mountain • Wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, vines are around 40 years old • Total production is about 2,000 cases

  11. The Heart of Don Melchor • The oldest Cabernet Sauvignon on the right bank of the Maipo River • CLIMATE: Strong influence from the Andes Mountains and the Andes winds. Fresh, with little rain in the growing season • SOIL: 100% third terrace from the Maipo River. So, one macro terroir, with around 27 micro terroirs • Wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and some Cabernet Franc, from 4-year-old vines to 37-year-old vines • Total production is about 10,000 cases

  12. THIRD ALLUVIAL TERRACE: Older, gravelly sandy and gravelly clay. Soil developed roots – gravel – clay system. Very good drainage and fertility. SECOND ALLUVIAL TERRACE: Young, gravelly sandy, few clay formations. Very high drainage.

  13. CACHAPOAL and ALTO CACHAPOAL THE WINES CONCHA Y TORO CARMÍN DE PEUMO 2008 ALTAÏR ALTAÏR 2007

  14. The Heart of Carmín de Peumo • This wine can be considered the first Icon Carmenere • CLIMATE: Warm valley climate with fresh nights • SOIL: Colluvial-Alluvial from a mix of three different geographic regions: volcanic, granitic and alluvial from the Cachapoal River • Terroir shows a big heterogeneity, some soils have a water table • Wine is a blend of Carmenere with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Maipo and Cabernet Franc • Total production is about 1,200 cases

  15. The Heart of Altaïr • First millesime was 2002. Maybe the first wine to shows ALTO CACHAPOAL’s potential • CLIMATE: Fresh warm with a strong influence from the Andes’ high altitude climate • SOIL: Twelve macro terroir units, two “kings terroirs”: Sandy alluvial-colluvial and geological intrusive yellow slope • WINE: Unusual, clever blend: the heart is geology + gravel. At least 20 different wines from the vineyard • Total production is about 2,000 cases

  16. ACONCAGUA THE WINES ERRÁZURIZ DON MAXIMIANO 2007 SEÑA SEÑA 2007
