Description:
The name Santa Digna was given to the crosses marking the district boundaries of a land. These crosses served to delimit territories and symbolised good fortune and protection for those who were leaving for other climes.

Since reaching Chile in 1979, we have conducted some interesting viticultural experiments with different grape varieties. One of these, Syrah, did not appear to really thrive in Curico so after a few years we tried planting it in Linares, 140 km further south. There, growing in poor, well-drained soils, Syrah provides low-yield but excellent harvests.

After a long quest, we produced our first shiraz wine, with a small percentage of cabernet Sauvignon. This is an opulent wine, robust with a fine body and silky, rounded tannins.

Highlights are its deep purple colour and notes of forest fruits: blackberry, violet and hints of blackcurrant.

The palate is elegant with character. Ageing in French oak contributes a pleasing toasty background.

The perfect accompaniment for pasta and seasoned sauces, roasted and grilled meats, and exotic dishes.

Producer Information

In 1979, our hundred year-old wine-making company acquired a small winery in Curicó, in the Chilean central valley, as the first foreign company to back Chilean vineyard production located in a unique magical landscape, at the feet of the Andes volcanoes. Today, after almost thirty years, those 100 hectares acquired then have turned into 445 hectares of vineyards owned by the company itself. Our first estates in these lands were Maquehua, San Francisco Norte and Cordillera. At the end of the 90s we added San Luis de Alico and Empedrado. The excellent climate conditions for cultivating grapevines, with great temperature differences between night and day and lands free of grape phylloxera, have contributed to the fact that sublime wines are being made in lands from where one can view the greatness of the Andes, crowned by snow and a noble beauty. As of 2010 Miguel Torres Chile is directed by Miguel Torres Maczassek, a fifth generation Torres winemaker who moved to Chile with his family in order to maintain the tradition and passion for winemaking that the Torres family has demonstrated all these years.
