To be an “Oveja Negra” (black sheep) is to be true to oneself, to follow a unique and original path that is not limited by convention. And that describes our own Oveja Negra, an ample line of different and unforgettable high-quality blends with a style of their own. These wines are very easy to understand and enjoy and proudly denote their origin in the Maule Valley.
Our 2012 Oveja Negra Single Vineyard Syrah received a Gold Medal in the 2015 Catad’or Santiago competition. This is a wine with intense aromas of red fruits and an elegant touch of toast developed as it aged in oak barrels. Its tannins are round and silky and the finish is long and lingering.
“This is a very perfumed and complex wine that opens slowly and changes in the glass to reveal floral notes of lavender and chamomile balanced by fresh red fruit on the backdrop. It is rich in volume and texture, without excesses on the mid-palate, and the smooth tannins are silky and sweet. The bright acidity is very much present throughout the entire experience, making it ideal with white meats,” adds Edgar Carter, the winemaker responsible for Oveja Negra.
Catad’Or Chile is the country’s most important international wine and spirits competition. Now in its 20th year, it disseminates the excellence of Chilean wine around the world. Each year the winners are chosen by a panel of international judges known for their abilities, integrity, and who are respected voices in their respective countries, such as China, Japan, United States, Mexico, Canada, and others.
