The premium quality fresh wine juices are sourced from the finest vineyards of Chile’s Maipo Valley, ideally located between the waters of the Pacific Ocean and the shadow of the Andes Mountains.

Each bucket contains 6 gallons of juice. These juices have primarily been sold directly to wineries until recently. Vinemount Estate’s facility uses state-of-the-art process technology to ensure the highest-quality juices are provided to their winery customers throughout the United States. Now home hobbyists can make wine with the same high-quality juice that wineries use. Each pail comes with instructions and is acid/pH balanced for consistent results.

RED VARIETALS:


Barbera


Barbera
With natural origins that may be traced to Italy, Barbera was introduced to South America by Italian immigrants around the turn of the last century. Like many grapes that are widely planted, there is a wide range of quality and variety of Barbera wines from medium bodied, fruity wines to more powerful, intense examples that need cellaring. Some characteristics of the variety are more consistent—namely its deep ruby color, pink rim, noticeable levels of tannins and pronounced acidity. The color of Barbera makes it a value blending grape. The use of oak for fermentation or maturation can have a pronounced influence of the flavor and profile of Barbera. Barrel influenced Barbera tend to be rounder, richer with more plum and spice notes.

Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Franc shares many of the same genetic and aromatic characteristics as Cabernet Sauvignon, but with some noticeable differences. Cabernet Franc tends to be more lightly pigmented, with lower overall acidity, and produces wines with the same level of intensity and richness. Cabernet Franc tends to have very pronounced aromas, with notes of raspberries and black currants.  Chilean examples of Cabernet Franc tend to emphasize the fruit more, with growers delaying the harvesting of the grapes in an attempt to maximize the strong berry fruit notes.

Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Sauvignon
Chile’s star grape, the king of all reds - Cabernet Sauvignon, was introduced into Chile by French wine interests in the mid-19th century. Cabernet Sauvignon, the most widely planted red grape in Chile, successfully flourishes in the vineyards of both Central and Alto Maipo. This late-ripening grape flourishes throughout vineyards in the Maipo region where the hot, dry climate allows it to ripen thoroughly and develop rich red fruit, berry, black currant, fig aromas and flavors. Tannins, a natural part of grape skins, seeds, and stems—make Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon a firm-bodied, substantial wine.
Cabernet/Merlot Blend

Cabernet/Merlot Blend
Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes grown and harvested in Maipo Central are used to create this always popular blend of two of the wine world’s most outstanding varietals. Cabernet/Merlot Blend combines the rich texture and firm tannins of Cabernet, with the softer tannins and long, complex finish of Merlot to create a medium bodied wine, with a deep ruby red color. Aromas of spice and ripe berry from the Cabernet merge with the well-ripened blackberry fruit of the Merlot. The finished wine is characterized by spice and cherry on the palate.

Carmenere

Carmenere
Carmenere has rapidly become Chile’s own signature grape. The deepest and darkest of all red grapes, Carmenere is a Bordeaux type grape varietal originally introduced into Chile during the mid-19thcentury, and until recent times, mistaken for a Merlot clone. For those unfamiliar with Carmenere, it has often been described as a cross between Merlot and Cabernet Franc – soft gentle tannins found in Merlot, combined with the strong herbal tendencies found in Cab Franc.
Carmenere thrives in Chile’s long hot growing season. Rich in blackberries and black pepper characteristics, Carmenere is mellow and smooth, possessing well-rounded tannins, making this a very soft and easy to drink grape varietal.

Malbec

Malbec
Malbec is one of the traditional Bordeaux varieties, having a distinctive taste that is similar to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The difference between Malbec and Merlot is that Malbec has a more distinctive, full bodied flavor, while having a darker, more inky tone than Cabernet Sauvignon. Malbec wine has a fruity plum favor and it is typically a medium to full-bodied red wine. It is described as being earthy with a wood-like aroma.

Merlot

Merlot
A worldwide favorite with wine drinkers, Chilean Merlot goes down smooth with its unique spicy and peppery characteristics.  Merlot by nature is a dry, soft, drinkable wine with rich, plum-like flavors that draw out blueberry and cherry notes. The grape—naturally low in tannin and low in acid, is frequently blended with Cabernet to make a more full-bodied wine.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir
A relatively new addition to the Chilean line-up, Pinot Noir has arrived just in time to satisfy the ever growing number of Pinot fans in North America. A medium colored red, Pinot Noir is lighter in color than Cabernet and Merlot. Bursting with fruity flavors, Pinot Noir displays characteristics of Black Cherry, Raspberry, plum, and currant. Pinot Noir prospers best in the more recently planted vineyards located in the cooler climate regions of northern Chile and the mountainous areas of Alto Maipo.

Syrah

Syrah
Syrah or Shiraz, was a late arrival to Chilean vineyards, but has quickly set down roots, rapidly establishing itself as an up and coming star on the country’s  viticultural  horizon. A richly pigmented red grape producing inky purplish-red wines, Chilean Shiraz sourced from the hot climes of the Maipo Central, are lusty and juicy in taste, structured with firm tannins, creating strong aromas of blueberries, flowers, and cocoa.

Zinfandel

Zinfandel
Introduced into Chile with the intention of replicating the enormous popularity of its American cousin, Chilean Zinfandel, although a newcomer to the international wine world, is quickly establishing itself as a varietal to be to be taken seriously in its own right. 
A flexible grape that produces different wines ranging from light to full bodied, Zinfandel can be recognized by its zesty, berry fruit tastes and aromas.  Chilean Zinfandel, baked well done under the intense heat in the Maipo Central, is well ripened by harvest time, in some cases producing alcohol levels in excess of 16%.


WHITE VARIETALS:


Chardonnay

Chardonnay
A world favorite amongst white wine drinkers, the Chardonnay grape assumes an immense array of flavors.  The most widely planted white grape in Chile, Chardonnay has thrived in the cooler climate areas of the Alto Maipo, providing the grape with enough hang time to bring out the fruit aromas. Chilean Chardonnays are by nature well-rounded, with moderate acidity, with an aroma reminiscent of tropical and citrus fruits.  A typically dry wine, Chardonnay can take on strong tastes of butter and vanilla if oak-aged.

Muscat

Muscat
A recent arrival to the Chilean wine scene, Muscato is one of the world’s sweetest grapes that has quickly developed a large following amongst wine enthusiasts  in North America.  Light –bodied, with a nose that is very sweet, aromatic and fruity, Muscato is a fresh and light bodied wine that can be enjoyed with food or on its own. The sweetest of all white grapes produced in Chile, Muscato has often been mistaken for a dessert wine, and will satisfy the sweet tooth of  any  wine drinker.  And for those of you wine making enthusiasts who just can’t wait to pop the cork, Muscat is best enjoyed as a young wine , and is ready to drink within 9 months to one year.

Pinot Grigio

Pinot Grigio
Genetically related to Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc, Pinot Grigio has a brilliant golden color, with a very pleasant nose marked by apricot, tropical lemon and pineapple flavors. Best described as dry to off-dry, with slightly higher acid levels than other Chilean white varietals, many white wine enthusiasts are attracted to Pinot Grigio’s touch of tanginess and crispness.

Riesling

Riesling
As new cool-climate zones are opened in the north of the country and along the range of the Andes, Chilean growers have taken a strong interest in this German-born grape. Riesling produced in the Alto Maipo region adjacent to the Andes, produces wines with fuller body and more alcohol than its European cousin, but maintains its full flavored and fresh, crisp character that makes it so appealing to wine drinkers. Riesling is usually characterized by fruit and apricot floral aromas, and rich full-bodied citrus flavors with a fresh off dry to sweet finish.

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc
Sauvignon Blanc, grown in vineyards amongst the ocean breezes of Pacific Maipo, produces a highly aromatic wine with characteristics of citrus fruits, crisp apples and pears. A light to medium bodied wine with a normally dry finish, Sauvignon Blanc makes for a very pleasurable drinking experience, paired with food, on its own, or as an aperitif chilled during the summer months. The more ambitious winemaker will oak Sauvignon Blanc to bring out a smooth vanilla type flavor.
