Mr Bulnes was an intellectual and pioneer of the modernization of Chile who dedicated his last years to the preservation of the local fauna. He was particularly passionate about ornithology and enjoyed watching his favorite species, the mockingbird (Tenca) from the balcony of his library. 
Regional Information

The Colchagua Valley has evolved over the past twenty years from a quiet stretch of farmland to one of Chile's most important and active wine regions. The
low elevation of Colchagua's coastal hills allows Pacific breezes to interact with Andean winds, cooling the valley and extending the region's ripening period, which helps
preserve the acidity of the grapes, producing red wines with excellent color, freshness and aging potential.

Vinification Details
The mechanical harvest is done preferably at night to take advantage of the cool night temperatures. Before being put in tanks, the grapes are cooled. Before the alcoholic fermentation starts, they macerate at a temperature of 8°C for 7 days. The alcoholic fermentation lasts 7 to 10 days at a temperature of 26°C - 28°C. During this process, pumping-over are carried out daily, their frequency and duration are determined by daily tasting sessions. After fermentation, the wine and the marc remain in contact for approximately 7 to 10 days. Once the wine and the marc have been separated, the wine is put away as quickly as possible to preserve all its fruit and to begin its aging on wood.

Easy to drink

I'm reviewing this as I got a free sample from Ocado, nice easy drinking wine, went well with a beef stew, reasonably high in tannins though

Fruity Red

Full of flavours of autumn fruits. A few too many tannins for me though. If you like tannins this is a good choice.

Fantastic cabernet sauvignon

I'm reviewing this product because I got a free coupon from Ocado. First of all, when I got the bottle I was really impressed with how great it looked: a very fancy bottle, nice label, looked very posh. Had the wine and was absolutely delighted: it is everything I love in a red wine. Light but not too much, very pleasant on its own or with food, no after taste at all. Really really enjoyed it and will definitely be buying some in the future. Would recommend to everyone be it for a chilled evening drink or for a dinner party: smells lovely, not too acidic, not too strong but not too light: perfect balance. Thanks Ocado, you can send more this way just so I can try it again.

easy drinking

Received this from Ocado to review. For a supermarket wine it is nice and easy to drink. Tastes of red fruits, goes well with steak.
