The Oddbins Take

Astronaut, pop star, footballer, dentist… OK maybe not dentist, but if you’d asked us what we wanted to be in school, it probably would have been along those lines. However, school friends Felipe Ibáñez and Jorge Gutiérrez decided they would start up Viña Anakena winery and guess what, they did! But first, they toured the world and learned the craft of winemaking, before returning to the Rapel Valley to produce well-balanced wines like this Pinot Noir, with its intense and complex aromas of black cherry, strawberry and floral notes. It seems that childhood dreams are, in fact, possible.

In the Rapel Valley, at the foothills of the Andes Mountains, school friends Felipe Ibáñez and Jorge Gutiérrez founded Viña Anakena. Their project was to be exceptional, so they scoured the celebrated wine-producing regions of the world, soaking up the culture and the most up-to-date winery techniques, and then translated that in the Rapel Valley.

Anakena is committed to the preservation of the environment, using environmentally friendly production methods. These include an integrated system of agriculture, recycling resources, reprocessing any waste and the use of organic compost.

The philosophy of the winery is inspired by the Ona Tribe, who were the first inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego, in the Chilean Patagonia. They kept away from civilization for as long as any other indigenous ethnic group, maintaining their spirit intact for centuries. The Ona Special Reserve range from Viña Anakena rescue that courageous and daring spirit, offering wines in accordance to the characteristics of their origin and elegance, refinement and audacity.

A delicate, ruby red wine which conveys elegance and complexity in the nose. With fragrant aromas of strawberry, laced with cherry and clove notes, the wine is gentle on the palate and has a persistent finish.
