About This Wine

As its maker likes to say, this is a wine to share — to “Kunza.”

An expression used by the indigenous people of northern Chile, “Kunza” is derived from the complex combination of soil, water and vegetation that granted them pride and became their greatest asset. It’s a term more commonly known in the wine world as “terroir.”

There’s no question that the Kunza/terroir of Chile’s Maipo Valley is special. Said to be the country’s oldest wine region, it’s certainly among the most traditional, with plantings devoted primarily to varietals first made famous in France.

These French-inspired vineyards initiated Chile’s second wine boom some 150 years ago, and produce prized Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere and Malbec. The 2016 Kunza Malbec “Gran Reserva” is a fresh wine that pairs nicely with everything from roast beef to hamburgers, and from tuna steak to lamb. And that means it’s a wonderful wine for sharing with friends.

About Malbec

A midseason ripener, it can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to claret blends.
