Chilean wine is among the best wines in the world. Its history begins with the arrival of the Spanish, going through various periods of prosperity and crisis, until the 1980s when world producers recognized the quality of Chilean strains and invested in them, developing the sector with all the advances.
The Carménère grape is exclusive to Chile, as this European grape variety became extinct in the 19th century due to phylloxera. Other varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and to a lesser extent, Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Malbec and Pinot Noir are also grown. For white wines, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon and Gewürztraminer are grown.
The country has five major wine growing regions: Atacama, Coquimbo, Aconcagua, Valle Central and Sur, making wines that fall into three categories: wines with a designation of origin, wines without a designation of origin and “vinos de mesa” (table wines).
Chilean rosé wine
The bottling process for Chilean rosé wines begins in June (in Spain it usually begins in September), and one of its references, the Santa Digna Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé, is now available for sale in the online wine store INVINIC. This is a wine of great personality: original, young and non-conformist, with the charm of Cabernet Sauvignon vinified in rosé and with a brief maceration of the skins. It has a fragrant, floral aroma and a tempting fruity sensuality. In the mouth it is voluptuous, with a silky fabric and fruity body (cassis, blueberries, blackcurrant) that can only offer a rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Pacific. It is an excellent rosé wine to accompany sausages, empanadas and Italian pasta dishes.
