Two New Assemblage wines Join the Viu Manent’s ViBo LineAugust 2013
Viña Viu Manent, located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, presents two innovative blends, Punta del Viento and Viñedo Centenario, to form the new ViBo brand, which until now has been a single Viu Manent wine from Argentina.
Each of the new wines is identified with a specific vineyard and reflects the terroir that it represents. These wines have the character and identity of Colchagua and are presented with attractive modern packaging.
ViBo Punta del Viento 2011 begins at the foot of the Punta del Viento hill at the El Olivar estate, where afternoon breezes from the Pacific Ocean cool the vineyards, located near Peralillo in the Colchagua Valley.
The blend of Mediterranean varieties that grow in the gentle piedmont soils with porous clay, gravel soils, and good drainage stand out for their remarkable personality.
Ruby red in color with violet tones. The distinctive and very complex nose is full of personality and aromas of forest fruits, exotic fruits, berries, and sweet spices. The palate is lush and complex, featuring fresh acidity and good structure with tannins that lend personality. It is also very well integrated and ends with long, deep, and pleasing finish. Drink now or hold up to 8 years.
ViBo Viñedo Centenario 2011 reflects its origin and Viu Manent’s traditions in Colchagua because it comes from vineyards that are more than 100 years old at the San Carlos de Cunaco estate. Its deep soils are of alluvial origin, extremely porous, and ideal for achieving excellent quality.
Deep cherry red with a violet hue. The complex nose offers aromas of red fruits, black currant, berries, cherries, blueberries, and plums with subtle notes of toast and blonde tobacco that meld with the fruit. The palate is ripe, complex, and very well structured with round tannins and fresh acidity and ends with an elegant, well-balanced, and mineral finish. Drink now or hold up to 8 years.
