In a busy press event held in Vinolia, we presented Cuvée Los Lingues 2016 in its Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Syrah varieties. This new line reinforces our commitment to making wines that express the true sense of origin and the importance of the new Denomination of Origin in Los Lingues.
The creation of the D.O. Los Lingues was the final impulse we needed to make a change of label we had been thinking for some time, for a line of wines that already had several upgrades.
The 2007 and 2008 harvests were simply called Koyle. They were wines made with grapes from Lolol, Apalta and Los Lingues. The name Reserva was added to the next two harvests, while in 2011 and 2012 they were labeled Gran Reserva. As of 2013, it was decided to work only with Los Lingues grapes, thus creating the Single Vineyard line.
Now we present a new change, the final, with the launching of Cuvée Los Lingues, a step that reflects the journey made by the vineyard in these 12 years and whose focus has been to be a reference in the production of quality wines, guided by Biodynamic agriculture considered by us to be the best way to obtain healthy grapes that express the best of their origin.
Cristóbal Toti Undurraga, our winemaker and technical director, explained this change:
"Through wines and Biodynamics we have experienced a learning process, an evolution that has led us to discover the great potential that Los Lingues has and for that reason we decided to focus on it. Cuvée Los Lingues has an unmistakable identity, which authentically reflects the Terroir".
During the presentation to the press, there was a tasting of Carmenère 2009, 2013 and 2017 and Cabernet Sauvignon 2007, 2011 and 2016, a minivertical in which it was possible to appreciate the evolution that this label had, how the most recent harvests express faithfully its origin, with fruitier and fresh wines, as well as its good aging potential.
Cuvée Los Lingues has Demeter (Biodynamic), Ecocert (organic) and NON-GMO (non-genetically modified) certifications, in addition to the Vegan seal issued by the Vegan Society, the oldest vegan society in the world.
