Robert Parker (RP) : 94 Points (2016)
The 2016 Dulcinea was produced from a dry-farmed vineyard planted in 2010 in Traiguén in the south of Chile. It's a fresh vintage with good weight, combining elegance and ripeness, always super tasty, elegant and long on the palate, in a subtle way. There is less oak than previous vintages, because in the beginning they had to use new barrels. It opens up in the glass, showing some reductive minerality not unlike some of my favorite whites from Burgundy. They have increased volumes here to 1,500 bottles. It should develop nicely in bottle. It was bottled in January 2018.

Cauquenina meaning “girl from Cauquenes” is a blend of several varietals. Each lot was vinified and aged separately to create aromas of black pepper, tea leaves, graphite and violet and a full-bodied wine.

The Alto Cachapoal D.O. is a cold, high altitude area of the Andes mountain range, gving the grapes a natural high acidity. The nose has hints of white peach, pear and white flower blossom giving way to a buttery palate.

A mesmerising Malbec made from vines planted in 1914 in the cooler southern Bío-Bío Valley, producing grapes with beautiful acidity and fruit characteristics. Ripe, rich and well-structured with a lingering, intense finish.

This Carménère has aromas of blackberries, chocolate, vanilla and dried herbs. The palate is complex and concentrated with firm but round tannins, balanced acidity and a lingering finish.

Wafts of elegant perfumed florals dominate the nose in the usual Calvert manner, but with a stronger emphasis in this very precise and attractively scented vintage. Hints of crushed spice and red…
