New Release: La Piu Belle Rosé

The desire for freshness inspired the release of the winery’s latest wine, La Piu Belle Rosé. Made from a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Syrah, VIK first made the wine last year, but only for those that visited the property in Chile.

“The idea was to have a really fresh wine that was complex, but that people could also enjoy while sunbathing. We only make red wine and we needed an alternative.

What I want to have is a serious rosé that professionals can analyse in terms of the flavours, the profile, the acidity, and the complexity of aromas. But if you want a fine rosé in terms of freshness that you can enjoy outside, it can be that too.” According to our Chief Winemaker. Cristián Vallejo.

Like its red cousin La Piu Belle (56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Carmenere, 9% Syrah), the bottle features a label designed by an artist, this time from Uruguay.

Our rosé is pale pink in colour and is made by gently pressing whole clusters, before the wine is kept on its lees. 7% of the wine spends a month in second and third use French oak barrels.
