In the mid-1990s Concha y Toro, purchased a collection of vineyards of about 3,185 acres in the Mendoza region of neighboring Argentina, there was little doubt on either side of the Andes that change was in the air. Wind is the agent of change, so it was only fitting that the new venture was named “Trivento” (Three Winds), a whimsical reference to three winds that sweep through Mendoza and are such a distinguishing feature of the region’s climate and environment. Named an "outstanding value" by Wine Advocate, Trivento is a light, refreshing blend of Torrontes, Viognier and Chardonnay. A vibrant nose of peach, apricot, jasmine and tropical fruit leads to a crisp, slightly off-dry palate with satisfying acidity and a long citrus finish.

Chardonnay is the single most sought-after varietal in the world, is planted in almost every wine-producing country and is adaptable to a wide range of climates. Balance is what good wine is all about, and this s very well balanced Chardonnay. Oak, fruit, acidity, in harmony with a silky body that finishes nicely. This Chardonnay is from a vineyard at 135m above sea level on the south bank of Limari River. The limited production wine was fermented and then aged in French oak for eleven months. The 11 months in French oak permits this wine to carry just the right amount of wood on the palate and adds generous helpings of vanilla and hazelnut. With a full and vibrant palate, the crisp acidity grants it a long without being overbearing. Whether you like your chardonnay on the fruity side, or you prefer it more buttery and heavily oaked, this chardonnay will please everyone that loves chardonnay. You cannot go wrong with this one.

This Malbec is a wonderfully friendly style of Malbec, the color of brick red with some purple notes. The nose has aromas of ripe red fruit, vanilla, smoke, toast bread and earthy spice. On your palate you will notice the classic Malbec flavors of meat, leather and cigar box, along with brooding dark fruit and soft, silky tannins, making for a pleasingly long finish. The grapes come from a single vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza are handpicked, and aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. The wine spends an additional 12 months in bottles before it is released. Goes well with tangy cheeses, red meats, and especially steak

The wine is a deep red in the glass with intense black fruit aromas and a hint of black pepper. Blackberry and chocolate flavors dominate, with concentrated fruit in the mid-palate. Balanced acid gives it a strong finish. The grapes get a lot of special handling with this wine. They are hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks and macerated for 20 days after fermentation. The wine spends 18 months in new and used French oak barrels. Winemaker Notes: Color: Dark, deep red. Bouquet: Intense aromas of ripe black fruit coupled with spicy black pepper. Taste: Voluptuous with flavors of blackberry, dark chocolate and hints of vanilla. Marques de Casa Concha marries well with roasted meats, aged cheeses, and robust pastas.

Cabernet Sauvignon base provides the Trio structure and good fruit concentration to blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 15% Shiraz. The Cabernet provides the tannins responsible for the long finish, the Shiraz contributes to the expression and aromatic exuberance, while the Cabernet Franc adds elegance and balance. When a wine is as well structured as this one, the flavor is concentrate and you have an intensely aromatic experience. These three varieties come together to shape a well structured, concentrated and intensely aromatic assemblage. You see an intense and vital red, will smell the spice notes, herbs, black cherry, blueberry and a fine perfume of tobacco while you will taste a powerful, long finish. A versatile blend that can be paired with a multitude of items from grilled meats and hard cheeses to complex deserts.
