So intense in colour it is almost opaque this wine exhibits a rich nose of blackcurrant, chocolate and black cherry. In the mouth mocha, leather and liquorice flavours dominate supported by a backbone of robust yet supple tannins leading to a long, lingering finish. Serving temperature: 17 to 18C

Viu Manent is a Chilean winery owned by the Viu family. It was founded in 1935 when the Catalonian immigrant Miguel Viu-Garca and his two sons Agustn and Miguel Viu-Manent founded Bodegas Viu in Santiago de Chile. They bottled and sold wine on the local market under the Vinos Viu brand.
In 1966 Miguel Viu Manent fulfilled his long-time dream of making his own wines when he acquired the Hacienda San Carlos de Cunaco in Colchagua. This traditional estate included 150 hectares of vineyards planted to noble, pre-phylloxera vines, as well as a winery and manor house.
