Epu is the second label of Almaviva, and this 2019 is the very first international release. Made of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Carmenere, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc, the Epu is a terrific wine to drink in its youth, or to save for 3-10 years. Almaviva wines represent France joining Chile in the production of a prestigious red wine... in 1997, Baroness Philippine de Rothschild of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, and Eduardo Guilisasti Tagle of Viña Concha y Toro S.A., sealed a partnership agreement with a view to create an exceptional Franco-Chilean wine called Almaviva.
Almaviva was the first wine in Chile created under the French Château concept, taking into account exceptional terroir, one unique bodega and one technical team – the three of which are dedicated exclusively to the production of one wine of unparalleled quality and excellence. Almaviva wine is produced under the joint technical supervision of both partners, the first vintage achieved immediate international success upon its launch in 1998.
