VIA Wines was established in 1998 as an estate-based winery in the Maule Valley, which aims to be a modern response to the needs of today`s international wine markets. Today VIA Wines owns more than 1,000 hectares (~2,500 acres) of vineyards in the premiere wine regions of Chile; Casablanca, Colchagua, Curicóand Maule Valleys.
Chilensis is the true reflection of these diverse terroirs; wines that show the fruit and aromas of Chile, internationally known as a “viticultural paradise”.
Our 2009 Chilensis Lazuli blend stands out for its deep dark ruby-red color. Its intense, complex aromas showcase black fruit such as blackberries and red currants, along with spices that evoke black pepper, bay leaf, and thyme, as well as intense smoke and vanilla from the barrel aging. Lively on the palate, with good volume, a lingering persistence, and an abundance of juicy tannins. This blend makes it mark with its complexity and aromatic harmony. Its structure and elegance make it ideal for pairing with hearty dishes such as spit-roasted lamb, duck and wild boar. Best served at 19ºC (66ºF).
