With remarkable 93 points, this Cabernet Sauvignon, sourced from the Quinta de Maipo vineyard, stood out in the last review of Chilean wines by Tim Atkin, the renowned British critic and Master of Wine, thus crowning a series of great recognitions received during the past year.
As a wine worthy of unprecedented awards in internationally renowned magazines and competitions, the 2014 vintage of Protegido, Viña Maipo’s high-end Cabernet Sauvignon, stands amongst the leading wines in its category.
At the International Wine Challenge (IWC) 2017, the influential British competition, Protegido 2014 was awarded a Gold Medal and was remarkably acknowledged as “Chilean Cabernet Blend Trophy”. The wine also received 93 points in the last review on Chilean wines by James Suckling, the American critic, as well as in Descorchados 2018, the latest version of this Chilean wine guide. All this adds up to its nomination as “The Best Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon in the US$20-50 -range”, a recognition granted by the Annual Wines of Chile Awards (AWoCA) 2017, the country’s prestigious contest, thus consolidating its position as one of Chile’s most outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon in its category. In turn, during his recent visit to Chile, Tim Atkin, Master of Wine and renowned wine writer, awarded it with 93 excellent points.
This is a new confirmation of the good work done by the winemaker Max Weinlaub and his team. Since 2008, they have been determined to demonstrate the power, expressivity and elegance of the Cabernet Sauvignon from the Maipo Valley, particularly that from the Quinta de Maipo vineyard.
