December, 2010.- Some new 90 points just added to San Pedro’s Ultra Premium wines. Kankana del Elqui, Solar N°10, stemming from the exclusive origin, at Chilean northernmost wine-growing frontier, as well as, Tierras Moradas, another wine in the same category, a Carmenére born from impressive purple color soils in the locality of Pencahue, at the Maule Valley, have just attained 90 points each one, on the Chilean wines’ ranking published by The Wine Advocate, the magazine from American Robert Parker, one among the most influential specialized critics worldwide.
Extracted from the tasting, carried out in May this year, with 683 Chilean wines in total, expert Jay Miller, who rates the wines stemming from Chile, Argentina, Australia, Spain, Oregon and Washington in the United States, for Parker, has just released his ranking last week.
According to Miller’s review, the 2007 Kankana del Elqui, “surrenders an enticing nose of smoke, game, pepper, lavender, blueberry, and blackberry. Medium-to full-bodied, on the palate, it has excellent depth, succulent fruit, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will benefit from 2-3 years of cellaring and deliver pleasure through 2020”.
Regarding the 2007 Tierras Moradas, the expert highlights that it, “exhibits a nose of exotic spices, mineral, herbs, lavender, blueberry, and black cherry. Dense, rich, and balanced on the palate, this tasty effort will evolve for 2-3 years and provide pleasure from 2012 through 2019”.
Excellent qualities highlighted, and a very long life forecasted for our wines, by some of the most influential critics in the global wine-industry!
