Viña Tarapacá is one of the oldest wineries in Chile, they planted their first mark back in 1874, on the bottom of the Maipo Valley and here they launch the Chilean wine industry. In 1992, Viña Tarapacá was acquired by Fosfores Group. The plan was to create high level wines adapted to the consumer interest. Now the winery is located in a cozy little corner surrounded by the most beautiful vineyards, which now has around 850 cultivated hectares.
Viña Tarapacá chose to plant a lot of different grapes on their organic fields. Each year consists of the best combination of each vintage. The 2013 Tarapaca + PLUS is composed of 37% Syrah, 26% Carmenere, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. The grapes for Tarapaca + plus are picked by hand and the vinification is made separately. Then, they may be stored for up to 12 months in oak barrels before the final blend.
