DESCRIPTION
Viña La Rosa Don Reca Cuvée Limited Release 2017, Cachapoal Valley, Chile

Established in 1824 by the Ossa Family, Viña La Rosa is one of Chile’s oldest wineries, and is renowned for its award-winning, consistently excellent estate-grown and bottled wines. Viña La Rosa has 864.1 hectares (2,135.2 acres) of vineyards planted in the Cachapoal Valley.
The Cachapoal valley is located in the warm, central part of Chile, a two and a half hour drive from Santiago, Chile’s capital city. Cachapoal, which lies in the northern part of the Rapel Valley, is one of Chile’s historic wine growing regions and within it, Viña La Rosa enjoys a unique position on the banks of the Cachapoal river.
The climate is ideal for growing good quality wine grapes. The Cachapoal Valley is protected by the Chilean coastal range, which reduces the influence of cool and humid winds coming from the Pacific Ocean.



Gapsted Ballerina Canopy Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Yarra Valley, Australia
Gapsted Wines is the major brand of the Victorian Alps Winery, which started life (and continues) as a large-scale contract winemaking facility. The quality of the wines made for its own brand has led to the expansion of production not only under that label, but also under a raft of subsidiary labels. As well as the substantial estate plantings, Gapsted sources traditional and alternative grape varieties from the King and Alpine Valleys.



Gran Dante Malbec 2016, Mendoza, Argentina

Tsuno Campbell Early 2018, Miyazaki, Japan

都農酒莊 (Tsuno Wine) 坐立於日本宮崎縣正中央,土壤屬火山灰層,並不十分適合種植葡萄。因此,酒莊決定採用有機種植法,使他們更容易掌握葡萄的生長情況及控制葡萄糖度、酸度。在團隊亳不氣餒的努力耕耘下,最終改變了土壤,也從而有了都農葡萄酒的誕生。

佔地面積達 7 公頃的都農酒莊,以釀造莎當妮 (Chardonnay)、早熟坎貝爾 (Campbell Early) 及梅酒遠近馳名。其中他們的莎當妮更榮獲〔日本一〕稱號。在 2017 Japan Wine Challenge 中,成功挑戰來自 1,700 款葡萄酒,以 5 款產品獲獎。

Gran Dante Malbec 2016, Mendoza, Argentina
Vibrant ruby red with violet hues, bright and clean.
In the nose, it is intense, we can appreciate black fruit such as blackberries and floral notes like violet embraced by integrated and elegant oaky notes.
In the mouth, it is full-bodied with firm and marked tannins, which promise a long and safe aging in bottle.
A great Malbec with full varietal expression, where fruit, silkiness and balance stand out.
