Viejo Feo is a family vineyard owned by the Jimenez family and is part of Viña Tinajas del Maule. The family sought out some of Chile’s finest grape-growing terroir in the Maule Valley about 200 miles from Santiago. The region is fertile with heat-retaining rocky soil, and the water of the valley is pure, arising as runoff high in the Andes. These geographic characteristics combine for perfect growing conditions for the grape.
Viejo Feo Sauvignon Blanc, 2012
Classic Sauvignon Blanc; hints of peach, fresh and floral; comparable to a Sancerre or New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Viejo Feo Chardonnay, 2012
Unoaked; expressive aromas of bananas, pineapple & peaches; crisp like a green apple; delicate, clean finish.
Viejo Feo Merlot, 2011
Pleasantly intense with a smoky, vanilla aroma; soft, well-balanced character; full-bodied; new world style.
Viejo Feo Carménère, 2012
Carménère, the lost Bordeaux grape, is the Chilean 'flagship' wine; even when young it is soft & silky, with black fruits, spice & pepper in the nose.
