Viña Requingua

Santiago Achurra Larraín founded the winery in 1961 and, alongside new generations of the Achurra family, he has grown the winery to be amongst Chile’s top 20 producers. The Vineyards are located in the Curicó Valley, where a mild Mediterranean-type climate and varied soils offer superb conditions for growing numerous varieties. Long, dry summers with radiant days and cool nights help grapes attain their maximum potential for colour, aroma and flavour. Winemaking is led by Benoit Fitte, who left his native France to join the winery in 2001. Accolades include IWSC Gold for ‘Potro de Piedra’, Silver for ‘Toro de Piedra Carmenere-Cab. Sav.’ and ‘Puerto Viejo Cabernet Sauvignon’. Recently the ‘Toro de Piedra Late Harvest’ received a ‘Silver’ at Decanter

Tasting Notes

Intense nose of dark cherry, strawberry, cedar and liquorice. Juicy and round on the palate with firm tannins that combine well with dark fruits, prunes and roasted nuts with a toasty finish.

Food Matches

Roasted short ribs with aromatic spices.
