Viña Von Siebenthal

For over two decades, Mauro von Siebenthal, a Swiss lawyer and wine aficionado, had a dream. In 1998, with the financial support of four friends, Viña von Siebenthal finally became a reality. Viña von Siebenthal's harmonious philosophy has produced an extremely elegant wine which eloquently expresses the extraordinary characteristic of the Valle de Aconcagua terroir.

Tasting Notes

Mid ruby in colour. On the nose, there are intense fruity aromas - ripe plums and blackberries, blueberry together with eucalyptus, a hint of blackcurrant and sweet pepper. Highly concentrated fruit flavours including blueberry and blackberry plus touches of coffee, dark chocolate and wood smoke.

Food Matches

Delicious with lamb, especially with herbs - salsa verde for example or herb-crusted rack of lamb. Any lamb curry with herbs would also work well or try middle-eastern style meatballs or minced lamb kebabs with mint and coriander.

Vinification

The Carmenere grape, a variety originally from Bordeaux, has survived miraculously for more than a century in Chile where for many years it was confused with Merlot. In Aconcagua Valley it thrives and attains its maximum organoleptic expression benefitting from long autumn months with no rain or hail. In Panquehue,15 years ago, we planted Carmenere on the granitic soil of the slopes of Orocoipo hill.
