Haras De Pirque - Valle Central - Chile - Maipo

Professional Wine Reviews for Haras De Pirque Albis 2006

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2006 Albis is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with one fourth of Carmenere from organic vineyards produced jointly with the Antinori team. It feels quite classical, with notes of roasted coffee, smoke, cured meat, and black fruit. It has enough power to age in bottle and go well with meat stews and similar powerful dishes. 2006 was a cool vintage in Pirque, where the grapes are grown, and the grapes were harvested later than average. This is a little foursquare, still unevolved. Drink now-2020.

Additional Information on Haras De Pirque Albis 2006

Winery: Haras De Pirque

Region: Valle Central

The Valle Central of Chile is widely regarded as being one of the oldest 'New World' wine regions of earth, with a history that extends back over five hundred years to the time of the first European settlers in South America. Whilst they were mainly preoccupied with planting vines for the production of sacramental wines, today, the wine industry of Valle Central has never been stronger. With a wide range of vines flourishing in the region, thanks to the many micro-climates the valley provides, wineries can make the most of their particular location and produce fully ripened grapes of exquisite flavour and character. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenere grow very well all throughout the various areas within Valle Central, and the region is developing a serious reputation for excellence on the world stage.

Country: Chile

When the wealthy new landowners of the 19th century began planting large vineyards in the fertile central valleys of Chile, they must have been impressed at how successful the imported Old World grape varietals took to the land. However, such a fact is hardly surprising; with eight months of blazing sunshine coupled with oceanic winds from the west, and crystal clear spring waters from the Andes irrigating the soil, grapes such as Malbec, Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon were given everything they needed to flourish, and more. As the centuries passed, Chilean wineries continued to expand and experiment, resulting in a wide range of wine production methods and techniques, and consistently producing fine quality wines perfect for the international market. Nowadays, Chile is renowned for producing a wide variety of crisp white wines, and juicy, fruity reds enjoyed around the world for their drinkability and flavorful character, making this country very much one of the 'New World', albeit one with a fascinating link to the Old.
