2022 Viña Vik Winery La Piu Belle Rosé
The La Piu Belle Rosé Limited edition of vintage 2022 is the 4th year of this unprecedentedly beautiful rosé wine from VIK. This is incomparable in terms of wine and selection with almost all roses and VIK Winery calls it their new Masterpiece. It is a blend of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 4% Syrah from the Andean vineyards in Millahue, Cachapoal Valley. In addition to the unique mineral soil, the cool sea breeze that blows from the flanks of the Andes and the height of the vineyards certainly make this distinctive. This ensures unprecedented freshness and elegance. Part of the La Piu Belle Rosé is also aged for a few months in used French oak barrels and then undergoes a long bottle maturation.
The grapes were naturally harvested by hand in early March with a double selection. To preserve the aromas, the wine is pressed 100% whole and undergoes a long, cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Energetic and elegant that is the La Piu Belle. The wine is fruity with a dry aftertaste. The Cabernet Sauvignon gives the nose ripe red berries and round tannins in the middle of the mouth. Cabernet Franc adds notes of graphite and floral scents of lavender and violet. The Syrah has some spicy mineral notes. Mixed they present aromas of summer stone fruit, apricots and passion fruit with a surprising hint of citrus in the aftertaste.
This is a great wine with smoked salmon on toast with ricotta and extra virgin olive oil. Fresh pappardelle with tomato sauce, grated parmesan and basil leaves. Lobster fried in butter and steamed fresh vegetables or with Paella, but just as beautiful to take a glass of and enjoy solo. This is incomparable to the average rosé and is a wine that can easily be kept for a few years.

About Viña Vik Winery
In 2004, Alex and Carrie Vik started an entire team with the audacious goal of creating one of the best wines in the world. After a two-year search, the best terroir was found, located in the Millahue Valley in Chile. Millahue Valley means "Place of Gold". The vineyard is planted in the interior of the valley, offering a variety of terroirs and small microclimates cooled by coastal breezes. The vineyards consist of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Syrah. The winery was designed by Chilean architect Smiljan Radic in collaboration with Alex and Carrie Vik. It has been carefully designed to have minimal impact on the landscape. A state-of-the-art, highly sustainable, technologically creative and visually breathtaking experience. The winery was completed in 2014.
Under the leadership of Chilean Patrick Valette (wine consultant, Château Pavie and with French roots) and current winemaker Cristián Vallejo, involved in the project from the start, a wonderful company has been built since 2005. The work is very sustainable, harvesting is completely manual and fermentation takes place naturally without added yeasts. Today VIK produces four exceptional red wines and a rosé. They are rightly very proud that VIK, La Piu Belle, Milla Cala and "A" have received ratings well into the 90s, such as 99 points from James Suckling, a Master Medal from The Drink Business and platinum and gold medals of the Decanter, along with many other awards.
A water level in the wine cellar cools the barrel cellar without consuming energy. The translucent roof makes daytime work possible without artificial light. Inspired by the purity of our wines, we developed the concept of "Barroir". We roast used and new French barrels with oak from our hills and build our own barrels in our cooperage. These estate-crafted barrels embody the flavor of the terroir. Because they approach all the work holistically, they only use fallen centenarian trees that can be found on the immense estate.
In 2019, Wine Enthusiast Magazine unveiled their 20th annual Wine Star Awards and named VIK the Wine Star for 'Best Winery Experience'. In 2021, the competition ranked VIK as the 8th prestigious winery among the 50 World's Best Vineyards and iViña Vik has therefore very quickly joined the ranks of iconic wines from Chile and now also among the global top.
