Alto Cachapoal is a stunning Chilean micro-terroir within the Rapel Valley located in the foothills of the Andes. The climate is Mediterranean, the soils are alluvial, and the altitude is 2,000 feet. Wines from Alto Cachapoal have intense colour and aromatic concentration, a bright acidity, and restrained tannins.

At Lagar de Codegua, they only produce a limited amount of wine from a single vineyard. They believe that making wine is an art, which is represented through the drawings on the labels by famous Chilean artist Bororo. The modern winery is gravity-fed, and is surrounded by 130 acres of estate vines.

Plantings of Mourvèdre have yielded excellent results, allowing the winery to learn more about about the terroir and prompting the creation of more adventurous wines. This wine presents hints of graphite, slate,  and blueberries with added aromas of herbs and spices. Tense on the palate with rich acidity and a long finish, this is a highly drinkable red. 

This wine is characterized by its freshness, which pairs well with mature cheeses. Its notes of ripe fruit, with something spicy, rich in acidity and light on the palate will perfectly accompany a stew, seasoned meats, as well as various types of sausage. Leaving the meat aside, Codegua Mourvèdre behaves very well with Risotto.

Dark fruit, bay leaf, sage and guava on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with soft tannins. Juicy in the mouth with a fresh, supple finish. Drink now.
