Since 1874, in the heart of the Maipo valley, Viña Tarapacá has been crafting unique wines of outstanding quality. These estate bottled wines earned their first award in the US in 1876, and have been obtaining awards ever since.
James Suckling, one of the United States’ most recognized wine critics, recently posted on his website www.jamessuckling.com a report entitled “Chile’s Breathtaking Diversity” after a three week visit to numerous wineries from different regions of the country.
The report includes a review of hundreds of wines that Suckling tasted accompanied by journalist Jacobo Garcia Andrade, who added his views to the article.
Suckling and Andrade tasted hundreds of wines, and among the highest scores of the list is Tarapaca Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, which reached 93 points. Experts say Cabernets like this, which comes from Maipo Valley, have been gaining a place on the map of world viticulture, making this strain a reference in the production of wines.
Finally, the report also features Gran Reserva 2012 Blue Label, and Gran Reserva Pinot Noir 2013, both receiving 91 points.
