The Chilean Xavier Flouret Oscar 2014 rated by Wine & Spirits!
The origins of the Echeverría family goes back to a little town in the mountains of the Basque country called Amezqueta, near San Sebastián, in the province of Guipúzcoa. In 1740, the Echeverría family moved to Chile, and has been prominent in Chilean agriculture and active in grape growing and winemaking since then. In the early 1900s, the Echeverría family established their vineyard and winery in the outskirts of the town of Molina, in the Curicó Valley. Since then, Viña Echeverría has been growing high-quality grapes from French pre-philloxera rootstocks and produces fine wines in that same location. In 1992, the winery started marketing its wines worldwide with its own label. Today, they are successfully exporting to markets located in Europe, Asia, and America.
“A ripe and concentrated Cabernet, this has some herbal touches, but, mainly, strong tannins and black fruit. It needs food to handle its exuberance, perhaps lamb chops.” – Wine & Spirits
