Marichiweu Red Blend
Marichiweu Red Blend is an exceptional labeled wine that harmoniously combines five grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Petit Verdot, and Carmenere, in perfect proportions. It originates from the prestigious Maipo Central region.
Our winemaking process begins with a one-week pre-fermentation maceration, allowing the extraction of precious compounds from the grapes.
Then, fermentation takes place for two weeks, using native yeasts and organic nutrients to enhance the wine’s expression.
After this stage, we perform a one-week post-fermentation maceration, further enriching the structure and complexity.
After one month of tank aging, the wine is carefully transferred to recycled barrels, where it benefits from micro-oxygenation and the softening of tannins over two years.
We perform gentle monthly batonnage to enhance its elegance and balance. The result is an exceptional red wine with character, smoothness, and a remarkable expression of terroir.
Marichiweu Red Blend wine displays an intense and deep red color with violet tones and a prominent brightness.
The aromas unfold great complexity, with notes of red fruits such as cherries and strawberries, as well as hints of ripe blackberries and plums. Subtle nuances of tobacco, cedar, and rosemary are perceived, contributing to its elegance.
On the palate, the round and balanced tannins combine with fresh acidity and a powerful structure, providing a long, persistent, and elegant finish. Slightly sweet tannins contribute volume and body, completing this exceptional sensory experience.
How to Drink and Pair
This 2019 vintage Red Blend wine pairs exceptionally well with lean meats such as beef and lamb fillets, white poultry like chicken breasts, pasta dishes with mild sauces, and meat stews.
Furthermore, it complements perfectly with delicate fish such as baked or grilled sea bass and salmon, enhancing the flavors and creating a memorable gastronomic experience.
