Don Melchor

Don Melchor was Chile’s first icon wine has consistently received the highest praise and recognition throughout its entire history since the beginning. This confirms it as one of the maximum representatives of Cabernet Sauvignon and the Puente Alto terroir as Chile’s finest origin for producing this variety.


91% Cabernet Sauvignon

9% Cabernet Franc

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

Puente Alto, Alto Maipo Valley.


The Don Melchor vineyard is situated at the foot of the Andes Mountains on the northern bank of the Maipo River at 650 meters a.s.l. The vineyard covers 127 hectares, 90% of them planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.1% to Cabernet Franc, 1.9% to Merlot and 1% to Petit Verdot. The vines in the old vineyard currently average 30 years of age.


The first 30 cm of soil is loam with a large amount of stones below that. These soils ensure good drainage and low fertility, which helps restrict the plants’ vegetative growth and encourages the accumulation and maturation of phenolic compounds.


In general the vineyard has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate with an average rainfall of 350 mm per year. It is planted in one of the coldest sectors of the Alto Maipo Valley. This season was the coldest in the history of Don Melchor, and this, along with harvesting 10 days later than usual, allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and reach the end of the season with exceptionally well-ripened tannins along with very good fruit expression, freshness, and personality


15 months in French oak barrels, (66% new and 34% second-use).

Tim Atkin
Tim AtkinDon Melchor 2013“This is one of greatest ever releases of Don Melchor. The coolness of the vintage is evident in the freshness, poise and sheer elegance of this exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend. Focused and fine, with leafy, minty notes and dexterous oak integration”.
James Suckling
James SucklingDon Melchor 2014“Wonderful aromas of stones, mint and blackcurrants. Sweet tobacco. Tile and rust. So aromatic. This is the best Don Melchor I have ever tasted. Full body, very soft yet firm and silky. It has tension, intensity and balance.”
