Viña Pargua

Pargua winemaker Jean Pascal Lacaze believes that wine is only as good as the grapes from which it is made. At his Maipo Valley vineyard, Lacaze grows grapes sustainably and organically, uses the best fruit, ages the wine in individually selected barrels, and blends the juice at just the right time.

The label artwork was created by renowned Chilean artist Benjamin Lira, who took his inspiration from the word Pargua, meaning “full moon” in the Mapuche language. Like the artwork, which will change with every vintage, Pargua’s wines are vibrant, expressive, and harmonious.

Anka

The grapes for Anka red blend are certified organic and come from winemaker Jean-Pascal Lacaze's own vineyard in the heart of the Maipo Valley. Jean Pascal maintains vineyards that grow in poor, rocky soils on the slopes of the Andes. The contrasting temperatures from day to night provide ideal conditions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. Only the best fruit is used to make his wines, which are aged in individually selected french oak barrels, for 12 months, until they are ready to be manually blended. This elegant yet energetic wine is made with a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon 75%, Cabernet Franc 11%, Petit Verdot 2%, Merlot 5%, Carmenere 4%, Syrah 3%, from all estate organically grown fruit.  8000 cases produced.

“Spicy, dry, fresh: Lightly leafy aromas of plum, berry fruits, brick dust and tobacco feed into a crisp, direct palate with cherry, plum and integrated spicy flavors.” -Wine Enthusiast 90 Points June 2016
