Alwa meaning sunrise is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Syrah (35%), Carmenere (20%) and Carignan (2%).
Refined aromas of liquorice and dark chocolate lead to a complex palate of red fruits and spice.
WHAT MAKES IT SO SPECIAL?
- Made using only handpicked grapes from the best selected sites across Anakena’s Cachapoal Valley vineyards.
- Aged for 24 months in French and American oak then expertly blended to create a smooth, well structured wine with gently aged tannins.
In 1999 the first vineyards were planted in Alto Cachapoal and today Viña Anakena has 165 hectares in the Cachapoal Valley, 148 hectares in Leyda in the San Antonio Valley and 100 hectares in Cerro Ninquén in the Colchagua Valley. Leyda and Ninquén were almost unknown as far as wine production goes but the first shipments have managed to surprise international wine buffs with their extraordinary quality and originality.
