Founded in 1954 on fertile lands close to the capital of Chile by an important politician and businessman Mr. Maximo Valdes, the first vineyard of Santa Alicia used to be known as "Houses of Pirque". With extensive experience in the wine business, Maximo began by planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Today the vineyard continues with its tradition of excellence and prestige, expressed in each bottle are the decades of experience, high technology, and the privileged fruit which results from a marvelous environment.

Santa Alicia "De Los Andes" Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is created from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon that are sourced primarily from the winery’s own lots located on the foothills of the Andes Mountains. Grapes are hand-picked to avoid damaging the clusters, and then processed and de-stemmed. The fruit is cold macerated for 3-5 days in stainless steel tanks before proceeding to alcoholic fermentation. The wine is aged in fine-grain French oak barrels for 12 to 14 months. The result is a deep ruby red colored wine with a complex and intense nose, offering notes of blackberry, wild berries and ripe plum. The full bodied palate offers expansive tannins and balanced acidity with distinctive aromas of leather, cinnamon, clove and smoke. Hints of dark chocolate lingers through the long, silky finish.

"Grown in Pirque, this is a clear and honest Alto Maipo cabernet presented without any makeup. The flavors are pure fruit, with the softness of texture that characterizes Chilean cabernet, and the freshness of nights cooled by mountain air as it descends from the high Andes." - Wine & Spirits
