Viña Concha y Toro had an outstanding participation with its icon wine Gravas del Maipo and the lines Terrunyo and Marques de Casa Concha in the October edition of the American magazine Wine Spectator.

The list of distinctions is headed by Gravas del Maipo 2008, which obtained 93 points, the highest to date of a Chilean Syrah of that vintage, positioning it as No.1 of this variety in the country.

This is the second vintage of this iconic Syrah which last June was also awarded 93 points by the magazine Wine Enthusiast and as Editor’s Choice in the same publication.

Gravas del Maipo, under the winemaker Enrique Tirado, was widely recognized for its first vintage, the 2007, by the world’s principal wine publications and three of the most reputable wine guides in Chile which unanimously made it Chile’s Best Syrah.

For its part, the Terrunyo line, under the winemaker Ignacio Recabarren, obtained 91 points for its Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties, both for the 2008 vintage.

Lastly, confirming the sustained consistency of this line under the winemaker Marcelo Papa, the American publication awarded 91 points to Marques de Casa Concha Syrah 2009 and 90 points to Marques de Casa Concha Cabernet Sauvignon 2009. Both wines were also chosen as “Daily Wine Picks”by the publication’s editors.

These important recognitions reaffirm Viña Concha y Toro’s commitment to create the best wines possible that express the specific characteristics of their origin.
