Doña Bernarda

Origin

Dona Bernarda was the first icon wine released by Luis Felipe Edwards, in honour of his wife, Bernardita. This wine has been made in small quantities since 1997, from the highest quality grapes grown on the very best vineyard plots on our estate. A blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon, the varietal proportions change each year according to the winemaking team’s criteria and the results of each vintage.  This premium blend has been awarded many prestigious international medals and accolades over the years, including the Trophy for Best Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon in London’s International Wine Challenge.

Style

Based on Cabernet Sauvignon, complemented with Syrah, Carmenere, Petit Verdot and other varietals all from our high altitude vineyards, this is an extraordinary wine from our winery. First impression shows its deep red color. The nose is complex with rich fruit like blackberry, mulberry jam and hints of licorice. On the palate it is robust, firm and ripe tannins add to its complexity. The well-balanced oak and the blend of the powerful flavours of each varietal together enhance the long and rich finish. It is a wine to keep in the cellar for the next 20 years.

Food Pairing

Grilled red meat and vegetables, roasted chicken, pasta with tomato-based sauce, dark chocolate
