Tasting Notes:

Concentrated and elegant flavors of cherry, berry, plum and currant are well-integrated and supported by silky tannins. Rich mineral and underbrush accents linger on the refined finish. Drink now through 2021. 309 cases made.

Tasting Notes:

Their second vintage of their top Pinot Noir from Empedrado in Maule, the 2013 Escaleras de Empedrado is as spectacular as the debut vintage. It's clearly recognizable as Pinot Noir, and it has the subtleness, elegance and perfume of the best examples of the grape. There are notes of blood orange skin, exotic spices and a core of crunchy red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, with the tannins of the granite but a flinty sensation that made me think of the wines from the Douro in Portugal. It's both elegant and powerful, concentrated but soft. It's still very young but should develop nicely in bottle. 3,716 bottles produced.

Tasting Notes:

Very attractive dried red fruit with stone character follows through to a medium body and a tight and dense center palate. Flavorful finish. Pretty, solid pinot. Drink now.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Miguel Torres Chile is a Chilean winery that was founded in Curicó, in 1979, by the Spanish family company Miguel Torres. In its 570-acre (2.3 km2), the Viña Santa Digna vineyard cultivates the varieties Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay (for their white wines) and Cabernet sauvignon (for their red and rosé wines). To a lesser extent they also cultivate Pinot noir, which contributes to the cuvee of a brut sparkling wine. As well as the wines that they sell under the Santa Digna brand, the conditions of the Chilean vineyard have also allowed for the selection of a number of single estates or terroirs, such as Manso de Velasco, which produces its Cabernet sauvignon from vines that are over a hundred years old and have never been grafted. All of the wines undergo a fermentation process in stainless steel tanks, with their temperature carefully controlled, and furthermore, in the case of some wines, in the aging cellar in barrels made of American and Nevers French oak. Miguel Torres Chile have 160 acres (65 ha) hectares of their own vineyards in the region of Curicó, plus another 530 acres (215 ha) that are leased out.
