    The Maule Valley was one of the first areas in Chile where vines were planted and its viticulture history stretches back to the start of colonisation.  It lies at the southern end of the Central Valley and is one of the coolest wine-producing areas in Chile, although the Maule River flowing east to west has a moderating effect on the climate.  Viña de Aguirre is a 100% family winery located in the town of Villa Alegre, in the heart of the Maule Valley, producing high-quality, award-winning wines.   Carménère is the home grape.  It originated in Bordeaux but now grows almost only in Chile.  The wine is treasured for its supple red-and-black berry flavours and herbaceous green pepper notes.

    This Vina de Aguirre Vinoir Carménère is a modern, elegant, fruity, lighter style Carménère that has had no oak aging.  It is packed with berries and plums with chocolate and pepper notes and that characteristic Carmenere smokiness.  The texture is round and silky and has deliciously long finish.

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
