Producer Information

Voted by Wines of Chile as "Winery of the Year 2016", Emiliana is one of Chile's most exciting producers and pioneers in organic and biodynamic winemaking. Since 1998, this Chilean winery has been producing award-winning wines from almost 1,000 hectares of vineyards in prime sites including Casablanca, Maipo, Cachapoal, Colchagua and Bio Bio.

Its spectacular biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from across the world. Emiliana's innovative and natural-leaning wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring.

Emiliana began its conversion to organic production in 1998, and today 100% of its properties are organically managed. It is the world's largest organic winery. It holds organic certifications in accordance with the standards of the United States, Canada (NOP), Brazil, Chile, Japan, South Korea, China, and Europe. In 2006, Emiliana was the first winery in Latin America to produce a wine with biodynamic certification. Since then, the use of biodynamic practices at its farms and cellars has been accredited and today 100% of its properties are certified. Emiliana received its Fairtrade and Fair For Life certifications in 2011 and 2017, and has been selling fair trade wines since 2012.

Emiliana was a pioneer in the implementation of the Wine of Chile Sustainability Code certification in 2012. This standard was developed for the Chilean wine sector to support the implementation of sustainable practices at a national level, as well as social and environmental responsibility at Emiliana.

Emiliana is certified to use the Vegan Society trademark, which attests that its wines are produced without any animal-derived products.

Grapes

Roussane, Syrah

Production

The Syrah and Rousanne grapes are from La Quebrada Vineyard in the La Vinilla zone of Casablanca in the foothills of the Coastal Mountains. Vines are planted 380 m above sea level in deep soils of granitic colluvial origin with good structure, low in clay content with a sandy-loam texture that allows the roots to penetrate deeply.

Vinification

The grapes were picked into bins, transported to the winery, and immediately chilled. The reception process begins with a double selection system on conveyor belts both before and after being destemmed. The grapes are then crushed and deposited into stainless steel tanks, where they undergo a 2-day cold maceration at 6º–8ºC. The temperature was then raised for the alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts at temperatures controlled to 20º–24ºC with a pumpover program managed according to enological criteria. Malolactic fermentation took place naturally in stainless steel tanks, the wine was aged for 5 months-50% in cement egg tanks and 50% in cement truncated cone tanks. The wine was the stabilized without treatments.

Tasting Notes

Salvaje is a vivid, wild untamed organic, natural red from Casablanca.

Deep violet-red. A distinctive nose with black olive and black forest fruits. The palate is intense with brooding blackberry fruit, black olive and clove spices. The velvety texture leads on to a long, concentrated finish.

A great match with lamb, sirloin, or other red meats. Spices that characterize Thai, Indian, and Vietnamese cuisine also go very well with this wine.
