Colour: Dark purple and ruby in color with garnet edges.
Nose: Pronounced aromas of earth with a distinctive pine scent balanced against both sweet and tart raspberries and other wild berries, and spicy green bell peppers (or mild jalapenos).
Palate: Medium bodied that smooths out as it breathes, this wine is dry, with solid tannins and acidity that provides a mineral mouth feel. The tart fruit married with a distinctive spiciness that reaches the farthest corners of your mouth is very nice. Finishes long and smooth leaving you with its component flavors of fruit, mild oak and its vegital flavors.
Grape Varieties: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Camenere
History of Pengwine
Named after the Chilean penguins, PengWine is a producer of unique wine from Chile. The founders wanted the company to have a name that was as unique and adventurous as the endeavor of making the wine itself, therefore they thought of the resilient Chilean penguins that make their home along the coast… and with that, PengWine was born.
To toast and honor these land and sea-loving birds, each blend is named after a different penguin native to South America. Hector Olivares is the wine maker behind PengWine. Mr. Olivares studied at the Catholic University in Chile with a degree in winemaking and then went on to study hands-on at vineyards in Spain. He then returned to his homeland of Chile to work with The Morande Family winery and in Ecuador (at the Chaupi Estancia winery). Mr. Olivares also serves as a trusted advisor to other Maipo Valley wineries.
