Next to Emiliana Vineyards, they also own Concha y Tora, one of the country’s largest wineries.
They lived in their father's house on the Clivus Scauri as in a monastery and, encouraging one another to virtue by discourse and example, made great progress in spiritual life.
Naturally, such a large winery has a number of different lines, mainly for marketing purposes, out of which Adobe Reserva, Signos de Origen, Coyam and Gê are the most important ones. In Chile and in many other New World wine countries, including the US, the term ‘reserve wine’ has no legal meaning. Old world wine countries like Spain, Italy and Austria regulate Note to the U. readers of Vino in Love: In the United States, the Adobe Reserve line is marketed as ‘Natura‘ because Adobe is a registered trademark of a software company.
So if you intend to buy one of Emiliana’s Adobe wines then look for Natura instead.
This is a quality line of four red and one white wine. Emiliana’s most acclaimed wine is Coyam – a wine that Emiliana has been producing since 2001. This Syrah has a good depth, richness and come with a long-lasting aftertaste. The wine has well-integrated round tannins, a good depth and a medium acidity. The Adobe Reserva line does not pop any fireworks but the Syrah is great, especially for that price.
The grapes undergo a stricter selection and the wines offer more complexity than those of the Adobe Reserva line. This complex wine is a blend of hand-picked Carmenere and Syrah with small amounts of other French varieties. After 10 day fermentation, the wine undergoes an expected maceration process of up to 35 days. Like Gê, it is a blend of French up to six French varieties with Syrah making up at least 30% of the blend. The 2011 Coyam is a blend of 41% Syrah, 29% Carmenere, 20% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Mourvedre and 1% Petit Verdot. Highly intense nose with a harmonious mix of dark fruit, spices and earth. Coyam is a complex, medium-full-bodied Bordeaux-blend. Their Chardonnay is not my type of wine and the Cabernet was alright.
