Indomita, Nostros Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva, Maipo, Chile, 2022
Viña Indómita occupies a truly spectacular location, between Santiago and Valparaíso in the heart of Casablanca, with an imposing house and hillside sign that wouldn’t look out of place in Hollywood, yet belies a dynamic winemaking team and one of the most exciting winemaking projects in Chile.
Their 100 hectares of vineyards across Casablanca and Maipo, take full advantage of the regions climatic differences, with a focus on Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir in the cooler Casablanca Valley, whilst Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère are the main varieties cultivated in the warmer Maipo region. Environmental sustainability and social responsibility are taken seriously, with measures to minimise waste water and energy consumption, alongside ventures to create local employment across both winemaking and wine tourism.
Closest wine region to the city of Santiago. Vineyards stretch eastward from Santiago to the Andes and westward to the coast to form three distinct sectors of the Maipo Valley best known for its well-balanced red wines. Alto Maipo reaches into the foothills and produces some of Chile’s leading Cabernets. Central Maipo is one of the country’s oldest and most diverse productive regions, and Coastal Maipo—a relative newcomer—benefits from the cool maritime influence that slides over and between the Coastal Mountains

An appealing deep garnet colour. A wine brimming with ripe red fruit, stewed fruit, spices and smoke. Perfect concentration, firm and lively tannins prompting a balanced, smooth sensation on the palate. Nice, oak-filled persistent finish.
Very gastronomic wine that goes well with pasta, cheeses, risottos, stews, grilled meat and asian cuisine.
