Wine tasting notes

Punta del Viento is the name of the hill where the vineyards that give rise to this wine are planted. Breezes from the Pacific Ocean reach and cool these vineyards, especially in the afternoon. A blend of Mediterranean varieties that have adapted very well to the climate and soils in Colchagua. 100% of the grapes come from the El Olivar Vineyard. The blend is based on Grenache, which contributes fruit, perfume, and aromatic intensity along with a silky palate and tremendous acidity; Mourvèdre, which lends the central structure and aromatic complexity; and Syrah, which helps bring the other two varieties together while enriching the palate with a bit of sweetness and minerality.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2011) - 92 pts

June 2014 - Luis Gutierrez - The 2011 ViBo Punta del Viento is a blend of 68% Garnacha, 21% Monastrell and the rest Syrah from the Punta del Viento plot from El Olivar, a slope vineyard in Peralillo, where the soil is rich in clay. It was aged in used barriques. It has bright red fruit, is powerful but still medium-bodied, with 15% alcohol, which is very well integrated. Supple and balanced, and a great combination of the freshness of the Garnacha and the backbone of Monastrell and Syrah, this kind of Mediterranean blend makes much more sense to me in a warm-climate region like Colchagua. Bravo! It’s a little too oaky, so leave it in the bottle for a little longer. Great value! Drink 2015-2020.

Nov 2014 - Rich and satisfying - a savoury counterpart to a southern French wine. A little chewy on the end but with masses of potential. Well d


James Suckling (2012) - 92 pts

Aromas of blueberries, spearmint, dried flowers and dark chocolate follow through to a full body with fine tannins and a citrus, berry aftertaste. Very refined and beautiful now. 76% garnacha, 15% monastrell, and 9% syrah. Drink now.
