Wine maker notes
Concerning the concept of Terroir, the 1999 harvestof Casa Real has undoubtedly achieved the ultimate expression of a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon wine. The grapes were vinified with the intention of obtaining a full-extraction wine, resulting in a high concentration of rich fruit and tannins. Casa Real 1999 is without a doubt a sophisticated and complex wine. The delicious taste of mature fruits like plums and black currants mesh with hints of leather, tobacco, vanilla and the aroma of cloves, gained from having spent 14 months in new French oak. By definition, a classic of excellence. Decanting before serving is suggested.

Technical notes
Harvest: April 1999 pH: 3.77 acidity 4.75 gr./lt. (tartaric acid) Alc/Vol. 13.8% residual sugar 2.04 gr./lt. bottled December, 2000.

Food pairing
Steak au Poivre, deer, game birds, mature cheeses, strongly seasoned red meats, duck, kidney, etc.

Heritage and enterprise are hallmarks of Santa Rita, one of Chile’s premier wine estates. Founded in 1880 in Chile’s Maipo Valley, this historic property was among the first to pioneer plantings of European grape varieties in Chile. In 1980, it was acquired by its present owner, Gruppo Claro, under whom Santa Rita has reaped the rewards of continuous investment, resulting in a period of impressive growth, during which the winery has consolidated its position in the vanguard of Chile’s most successful and innovative estates. Initiatives include the highly successful launch of Santa Rita’s 120 Series and Reserve wines and a range of ultra-premium wines, notably the highly acclaimed Casa Real, Triple C, the Floresta range and most recently, Pehuen. Wide-ranging enhancements include the purchase of choice new vineyards, plantings with top quality clones, improved trellising and irrigation, balanced viticulture, restricted yields, later harvesting, individual block farming, small-lot vinification, and an increased emphasis on sustainable agriculture. The Santa Rita property accounts for outstanding vineyards in Chile’s most important appellations -- the Maipo Valley; Apalta; Casablanca; Rapel; Leyda and Curico -- enabling access to diverse climates and terrain. Visitors to Santa Rita can look forward to accommodation at the estate’s luxury hotel, the Casa Real, with its breathtaking 100-acre gardens, its magnificent museum housing a breathtaking collection of pre-Columbian artifacts, or enjoy dinner at the property’s landmark restaurant, the Dona Paula.
