Casa Real Reserva Especial 2019 chosen as one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon of the world by Drinks Business17 de October de 2022
The icon wine of Viña Santa Rita won gold medal at The Global Cabernet Sauvignon Masters, which highlights the best wines of the year.
October 2022. The acclaimed British magazine Drinks Business made its selection of the 12 Best Cabernet Sauvignon of the year, regarding The Global Cabernet Sauvignon Masters, a contest that the publication holds annually. In this exclusive list was selected the icon wine of Viña Santa Rita: Casa Real Reserva Especial 2019.
“Made using Cabernet Sauvignon from an almost 60 year-old vineyard in one of the highest parts of the Maipo Valley, an area called Alto Jahuel. This is a wine of intensity and freshness. Indeed, it is a beautifully balanced red wine that benefits from the free-draining soils of an ancient alluvial terrace of the Maipo River and the cool night-time air from the Andean mountains”, emphasized MW Patrick Schmitt, also awarded with gold medal.
He also added: “this Casa Real from 2019, the 30th vintage since its launch with the 1989 harvest, is loaded with ripe and juicy blackcurrant and dark cherry fruit. Then tobacco leaf and cedar notes, complemented by flavours of cocoa powder and toast, with a lovely, dry, fresh edge to the wine that leaves one salivating and will ensure that this release, like the others before it, will age wonderfully if properly cellared”.
To make this list, the magazine contemplates different wines from the most diverse origins, from the mountains in Turkey and ancients wineries of Tuscany and Chile, considering a price range between £12 a £450.
Other wines from Viña Santa Rita that stood out during The Global Cabernet Sauvignon Masters were Floresta Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 with gold medal and Medalla Real Gold Medal 2019, Medalla Real Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2020, Medalla Real Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 with silver medal.
