Vina Koyle was founded in 2006 when the family set out to search for the ideal terroir for red wine production. With 6 generations of winemaking under their belt, the family wholeheartly knew how to spot the perfect plot. They found exactly what they were looking for in the foothills of the Andes: Los Lingues, Alto Colchagua. The location has the perfect Mediterranean micro climate and volcanic soil which brings a unique mineral quality to Koyle's wine. Still owned and operated to this day, the wines each embrace their own individual expressions derived from their individual terroir. Koyle Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is predominately Cab Sauv (85%) but also has a dollop and a dash of robust red grapes to round out the wine. At 5% each of Tempranillo, Malbec, and Petit Verdot, the Gran Reserva is built for versatility. With structure like this, you can easily tuck away in the cellar for 5+ years, or enjoy today with a decant to help open it up. Serve at 18 C.


How it looks

Vibrant violet with a ruby red undertone. Medium to full opacity, lightening towards the rim.

How it smells

Intense aromas of jammy black currants, plum compote, and blackberries. Spicy notes of clove, tobacco and dried herbs with a hint of black peppercorn. Fresh earthy notes of blackcurrant leaf, slate and wet stones. Rounding out with a note of violet completes the balanced bouquet.

How it tastes

Flavours of juicy black currant, bilberry and blackberry coat your palate once the wine opens up. Black tea, crushed black peppercorns and dried green herbs give a bright spicy characteristic. Dark chocolate and roasted coffee beans add a rich flavour. Expression of the terroir come out in the subtle earthy, and vegetal notes. The unique minerality is balanced with a medium acidity and solid tannins come together with a silky finish.

Recommended food pairing

Bold and rich in flavour we love this with a beef carpaccio or go classic with barbecued steak with a loaded baked potato.
