MARQUES DE CASA CONCHA ROSÉ NAMED A “REVELATION WINE”

The debut vintage of the Marques de Casa Concha Rosé was selected from among 1.700 wines as a Revelation in Descorchados 2018, the most recent edition of the influential guide to Chilean wines.

The debut vintage of the newest member of the Limited Edition line, the 2017 Marques de Casa Concha Rosé, earned 92 points and was also named one of Chile’s Revelation Wines.

Made with 100% Cinsault grapes from bush-trained old vines from the Trehuaco zone of the Itata Valley, 18 kilometers from the sea, to make just 200 9-liter cases of this new wine.

Made in the style of the world’s best Rosés, the Marques de Casa Concha Rosé presents a pale peachy-cantaloupe-pomegranate color and a smooth, creamy dry palate with fresh and delicate mineral notes.

The Rosé wasn’t the only Marques de Casa Concha wine to be singled out, however. In fact, Descorchados 2018 had high praise for the entire line:
