Santa Rita Medalla Real Cabernet Sauvignon

santa_rita_low_res.jpg Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile’s premier wine estates. Founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernandez in Chile’s Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile. In 1980, it was acquired by its late owner, Ricardo Claro, under whom Santa Rita reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile’s most successful and innovative estates. Grapes for Santa Rita’s Medalla Real wines are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness from the estates best and oldest vines. Intense fruit and a judicious use of French oak in the Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay result in complex and concentrated wines that are simultaneously elegant and classical in style.
