O Produtor, tasting note published in June 24th 2017

In the 2014 VIK vintage, smart decisions were made to leave the composition of the blend without Merlot, giving more exposure to Cabernet Sauvignon, followed by Cabernet Franc and sealed by Carmenere. Once opened, the deep notes of dark red and blue can be observed. An elegant, lightly worked wine with a surprising linear structure, taut and round tannins on the palate, which creates remarkable experiences, with substantial nuances and smoky undertones with a creamy mint and chocolate finish. The scent of vigorous blackberry, dried cherry, plum, raspberry and spices like white pepper with a hint of black on the nose.

Vik Wines

VIK was created in Millahue, in the Cachapoal Valley. This is a vineyard that embodies the perfect fusion of man, experience, land, climate and high technology.

THE PERFECT TERROIR
The VIK vineyard was born at the foot of the Andes Mountains, within the Millahue Valley, called “Lugar de Oro” or “Golden Place” by the native Mapuche people: 4,300 hectares of astonishing Chilean nature where more than 327 hectares of vines have been planted.

VIK’s terroir offers a majestic and natural landscape made up of 12 valleys, each with its own microclimate, distinct exposures, all within a wind tunnel cooled by coastal breezes from the Pacific and winds from high in the Andes that give VIK enormous complexity and exceptional variety.

OENOLOGIST
Head winemaker Cristian Vallejo oversees VIK’s viticulture and winemaking, ensuring that grapes are hand-picked and fermentation occurs naturally, without the addition of yeasts.

The wines are aged in a combination of new and used French oak barrels.
