Editors notes

Among the top 6% of all wines in the world

A Chilean "Primitivo" with expressive aromatics & soft tannins. An outstanding balance of fruit concentration, rich acidity and soft, leathery tannins.

Fruity aromas of Black Doris plum, cherries and berry jam, with hints of spicy marmalade and hickory sauce. Millaman's Limited Reserve label terrior, handpicked from low yield vines planted between 1940 to 1950.

Locations

Chile

With the Andes mountains to its east (on its border with Argentina) and the Pacific Ocean to its west, Chile has a unique geography and climate that make it suitable for a range of both red and white wine styles. The country enjoys cooling influences from both the ocean and the mountains, coupled with plenty of sunshine. Generally, Chilean vineyards have a Mediterranean climate, with a sunny, dry growing season and little risk of fungal diseases. Winery operations of all sizes throughout the country widely practise sustainable and organic grapegrowing and winemaking. Black grape varieties account for most of the plantings in Chile, with Cabernet Sauvignon the most widely planted. Styles can range from simple and fruity to premium full-bodied examples. Other red wine varieties include Merlot, Carmenère, Syrah, and Pinot Noir. Among the white varieties, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are the most dominant.

Central Valley

In terms of viticulture the central valley of chile (spanish: valle central) spans the o'higgins region (vi) and maule region (vii) administrative regions and the administrative metropolitan region, and is the main growing zone for chilean wine and coincides with the historical core of the chilean central valley.

This is chile's most productive and internationally known wine region, due predominately to its proximity to the national capital santiago.

It is located directly across the andes' from one of argentina's wine regions: mendoza province. Within the central valley there are four wine growing region subregions: the maipo valley, the rapel valley, the curicó valley and the maule valley.

Maipo

The Maipo Valley is the home of viticulture in Chile and one of its most important wine-producing regions. Located just south of the capital, Santiago, Maipo Valley is home to some of the country's most prestigious wines. It is often described as the 'Bordeaux of South America', and rich, fruit-driven Cabernet Sauvignon is undoubtedly its most celebrated wine style.

The first vines were planted around Santiago at the city's birth in the 1540s, but it wasn't until the 1800s that viticulture began to expand significantly, as an indirect result of entrepreneurial Chileans growing rich from the mineral wealth found in the Atacama Desert to the north. It became fashionable for these wealthy individuals to travel to France, and they inevitably returned home with vines to plant in their new, French-influenced wine estates. The vineyards of Cousino Macul, Concha Y Toro and Santa Rita were developed during this period, and they remain today important names in the Chilean wine industry

The vineyards of Alto Maipo (or Upper Maipo) run along the eastern edge of the Andes Mountains, where they benefit from altitudes of 1300-2500ft (400-760m) above sea level.

About the brand Millaman

Millaman Wines takes its name from the language of the Mapuche indigenous communities in Chile. Translating to 'Golden Condor', this winery has been built up by two generations of family dedicated to blending Italian winemaking techniques with the best Chilean varietals for a collection of wines that ticks all the boxes.

Italian immigrant, José Canepa, laid down his roots at the Hacienda El Condor estate in 1946 with a plan to begin producing the best wines of Curicó Valley. With his three daughters now at the helm, Millaman sources its fruit from vineyards in the Curicó, Maipo and Maule Valleys and produces a range of wines under a number of labels, including Malbec, Carménère and Zinfandel.
