Viu Manent is a family-owned Chilean winery founded in 1935. It is located in Colchagua Valley, in Chile’s central zone. The blend for this wine is 85% Malbec, and the other 15% is a guarded secret that only the winemaker Patricio Celedon knows! 36% of the wine was aged for ten months in French oak barrels, and the remaining 64% was held in stainless and concrete tanks for greater fruitiness and freshness in the final blend.
Nose: Floral, dark plum, dark berries, herbs, and spice.
Palate: Aromas segue onto the palate with juicy dark cherry and earthy notes. Plum and pepper linger on a long finish with smooth tannins, a touch of minerality, and lovely balance.
Pairings: Pasta, white meat, stews, or charcuterie board.
