Exclusive to KWM - Vina La Rosa's Estate Grown La Palma Cabernet Sauvignon is a crowd-pleaser of a red wine both for its flavour and its price. It is hard to find a Cabernet Sauvignon that shows so well for so little cost! Medium to full-bodied in style, it is fruit-forward with light tannins and no oak used in maturation. It can stand up to your steak, but it will pair nicely with a burger or pork ribs as well!750 ml
Winery Tasting Note (2020 vintage)

Established in 1824 by the Ossa Family, Viña La Rosa is one of Chile's oldest wineries and is renowned for its award-winning, consistently excellent, estate-grown and bottled wines. The Cachapoal Valley, where the winery is located (120 km south of Santiago) is a magical place where the fertile lands and vineyards are surrounded by the Cachapoal River and the Andes Mountain Range create a perfect micro-climate for growing grapes.
On the La Palma Estate Grown Label - La Palma is Spanish for Palm Tree. At Viña La Rosa the vineyards share the land with thousands of native Chilean palm trees - hence the name.
