Don Melchor 2020 is the only Chilean wine chosen in the “Best of the Best Wines of the World”
The American magazine Robb Report, a global reference in luxury products and experiences, released the list of the 17 most prestigious wines in the world, among which Don Melchor was highlighted as the leader in the “Chilean Wines” category.
Robb Report’s international “Best of the Best” ranking annually selects the experiences and products that are considered a clear reference in terms of luxury, heritage and excellence at a global level. This year, in its 35th version, it published the list “The 17 Best Wines of the Year” (the 17 Best Wines of the Year, according to its classification of 17 categories), where Don Melchor was awarded Best of the Best: Chilean wines.
The 2020 vintage of Viña Don Melchor’s icon Cabernet Sauvignon was described as a wine that “under the skilled hand of winemaker Enrique Tirado, the result is an intense violet-red wine with aromas of raspberry, black cherry and Turkish delight. The high temperatures of the growing season, plus judicious use of oak, translate into flavors of blackberry, fig, licorice, dark chocolate and rose petals wrapped in polished tannins, while cool nights contributed to surprising acidity and an elegant finish.”
In this edition, Don Melchor with its 2020 vintage, became the only Chilean wine on the list and positioned itself with great referents of the global wine industry.
“We are honored that Don Melchor 2020, a vintage that is currently in the markets, is recognized as “Best of the Best” within the 17 categories selected and as the only Chilean exponent. The quality of Don Melchor as an ambassador of Chile’s iconic wines is indisputable and its trajectory is unparalleled, having achieved the highest awards in its 35-year history. Being part of this prestigious list inspires us to continue our tireless quest to deliver in each vintage, together with our team, the excellence of making wines that truly show the unique character of our prestigious terroir located in the renowned Puente Alto Denomination of Origin”, says Enrique Tirado, CEO and Technical Director of Viña Don Melchor.
This recognition, in the leading magazine in the luxury segment, consolidates Don Melchor’s reputation as a benchmark of global excellence in the luxury segment, highlights the winery’s unwavering commitment to making world-class wines and pushes for the consolidation of Chile as a benchmark country in the production of the most prestigious world-class wines.
