Dagaz

Dagaz El Camino Blend

£15.00

Colchagua, which forms part of the larger Rapel Valley, runs southeast to northwest, from the foothills of the Andes on its east to the Coastal Range on its west. It enjoys a perfect climate for viticulture; warm with cool coastal breezes, and dry but with occasional rain and rivers that bring meltwater and nutritious silt down from the Andes.

Viña Dagaz (Dagaz is a Celtic rune that means ‘the beginning of a new path’) was founded in 2015 by renowned winemaker Marco Puyo and Patricio Gomez-Barris. After many years exploring the different areas of Colchagua whilst working on behalf of other wineries Marco felt that the temperate Mediterranean climate and granitic soils of Pumanque offered a unique opportunity to create something more personal. Drawing inspiration from the granitic soils of Côtes du Rhône, Galicia and Rioja, he wanted to create something that authentically represented the terroir. The first vintage in 2016 produced Tierras de Pumanque; a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Carménère and Syrah. Today Dagaz continue to produce high quality wines showing elegant mineral characteristics and good acidity with great structure.

This wine has a nice ruby red colour. On the nose it has a lot of fruit intensity such as raspberries and cherries, mixed with light notes of cedar and spices from its aging. In the mouth it is soft but with a good tannic structure. Elegant and complex with good persistence.
