Marcelo Papa celebrates 50 years of Marques de Casa Concha with a wine full of tradition

The renowned Chilean winemaker of Marques de Casa Concha and technical director of Concha y Toro, Marcelo Papavisited Lima with the purpose of presenting the different denominations of origin from Chile that come to the city with the help of GW Yichang, this due to the relevance that Peru has taken in relation to the wine market.

And one of the wines that caught the attention of experts is the Marques de Casa Concha Heritage 2020, a delicate composition of 84% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, with 16 months of aging that somehow seeks reflect the tradition of the winery born at the foot of the Andes mountain range, in the area of ​​Puente Alto, in the Maipo valley.

“Heritage 2020 was born for several reasons, we had been working on a wine called Black Label, with very good results. On the other hand, these wines from Puente Alto appear, all with 100 points, so we knew that we had everything to go for a great wine, so somehow we decided to change this wine from Black Label. That’s why it’s a tribute to the brand,” says Papa.

Compared to the other Punte Alto wines, Heritage 2020 has a lower price so that the consumer has the opportunity to enjoy it, however, the brand’s idea is that over time it will grow in recognition and therefore in value. It is necessary to mention that this wine comes from the Mariscal vineyard, planted in 2001, which has meant that it is worked with 20-year-old grapes that are beginning to be much better and more consistent.

What’s new from Marques de Casa Concha

In addition to the Heritage 2020, Marques de Casa Concha presents an Amelia Chardonnay 2022, a label recognized for its generous and gently oily palate, with a precise and fresh finish.

This flavor is provided by the natural conditions and soil with high limestone content of the Quebrada Seca vineyard, Limarí Valley in Chile, where the grapes grow.

Wine consumption in Latin America

Regarding consumption in Latin America, Marcelo assures that the user prefers easy wines, such as red wines with a lot of fruit, very round and soft, but there is also another group, which prefers higher-end wines, with more specialties and “that “challenge the palate.”

But another detail that is becoming very noticeable is that people are willing to pay a little more for more premium wines than for very mass wines. “A natural transition has been taking place that we call premiumization, that is, the consumer wants to go for a little more quality,” mentions the expert.
