Encierra

Encierra belongs to the Eyzaguirre Echenique family, wine producers based in the Colchagua Valley region of Chile. Encierra is obtained from grapes that come from `San Diego de Puquillay Vineyard`, with a planted area of 130 hectares. The varieties planted are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, Carmenere and Petit Verdot. These plantations undergo a rigorous selection process in order to choose which are to be used in the small production of 24,000 bottles that bear the Encierra label.

Central Valley

The Central Valley region dominates the wine scene in Chile, accounting for over 80 percent of production. Made up of several sub-regions, including the Maipo Valley, Colchagua and the Casablanca Valley the region stretches for 400 kilometres from north to south and is home to some of the country's biggest producers. Its large size and variable topography present a broad range of climatic conditions, soils and styles. Vineyards are planted on coastal plains, in the foothills of the Andes and at rocky altitudes of up to 750 metres. As a result a diverse variety of grapes are planted across the region. Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay all have homes here, as does Carmenere, Chile's flagship grape. Experimental and innovative producers are always seeking to develop new, cooler sites amongst the coastal areas and river valleys, resulting in plantings of Riesling and Viognier.

Colchagua

The southernmost region of the larger Rapel Valley, Colchagua is one of the premier wine regions in Chile. Cooler than the Maipo Valley to the north, Colchagua maintains a temperate Mediterranean climate. The valley is home to a diverse range of grapes: Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are popular in the ocean-cooled western vineyards, while in the warmer eastern vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Syrah and Merlot all take-up space. Colchagua is one of the two largest regions in the Central Valley, and varied topography and soils are found as a result. As with most wine regions the steeper slopes are the most desirable. The free-draining gravelly soils force the vines to grow their roots deep into the earth looking for moisture, which results in healthy vines that produce low yields of concentrated fruit. Known by many as a region with great potential, the wines from Colchagua certainly show class and the future is bright

Red Blend

Red blended wines are created around the world from a multitude of grapes and are often focused on local varieties. Well-blended red wines should make use of complementary varieties, that balance each other well. Cabernet Sauvignon often plays a major part, as does Syrah and Pinot Noir. Australia makes excellent wines from Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, known as GSMs. Portuguese red blends typically rely on inky Touriga Nacional, and in Argentina, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon are good friends.
