When Viña Vik was founded after a 10-year search for the perfect terroir, no expense was spared, including bringing in Chateau Margaux’s Cristian Vallejo as winemaker. With 98 points from Tasting Panel, and 4.6 Vivino Stars, it’s clear the 2013 VIK has arrived at the apex of Southern Hemisphere wine! Muscular and toned, with freshness and a bountiful maturity; complex aromas of lavender and fresh mint and Thai basil; and generous rhubarb and currant flavors. This flagship red exudes luxury at every sip. This is your chance to grab one of Chile’s best!
Blend: 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc, 14% Carmenere, 2% Merlot
Tasting Panel 98 Points
VIK’s vineyards encompass 11,000 acres dispersed across 12 valleys. This wine, first released with the 2011 vintage, took ten years of research to develop, including more than 4,000 deep-soil studies to find the right terroir. Weather stations were installed to determine planting locations and the ideal exposure levels to wind and sun. This vintage, a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Carménère, 17% Cab Franc, and 2% Merlot, is an intense creature with a satin entry that exudes luxury. Aromas of lavender and rhubarb are accented by alluring hints of spiced red tea. Generous and vivacious, this well-structured red possesses freshness and a bountiful maturity that will last for a decade or more. This is what Chile can deliver at its finest.
James Suckling 96 Points
Aromas of flowers, currants, fresh mint and Thai basil. Full body, structured and muscular with a toned texture. Bright and dynamic on the finish. Tangy finish under the fruit and wet earth highlights. Mostly cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, syrah, carmenere and merlot. This needs at least three to four years to come around.
