Inside Story
The vineyards around Santiago have long been known for their inexpensive, appealing red wines as well as ambitious Cabernets that are on par with the world’s best. Viñas Siegel is a family winery founded by Alberto Siegel more than three decades ago. Siegel’s grandfather was a German architect who found a flourishing career in Santiago; he designed several landmark buildings, including the country’s Federal Reserve, and eventually purchased a large ranch in the Colchagua Valley. Alberto’s father spent part of his career in charge of the vineyards on the family farm, and Alberto grew up there, in the middle of the vineyards.
No surprise then, that Alberto ended up making the vines his life. After studying agronomy, he gained experience working wineries in Germany and eventually founded the family’s namesake winery. One key to his success has been matching grape variety to place: Siegel grows white grapes closer to the ocean, to benefit from cooling breezes, and heat-loving reds such as Syrah and Bordeaux varieties such as Carmenère, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, the components of this red, in the warm, sunny Colchagua Valley.
In the Glass
Aromas of black currant, bay leaf and dried herbs lead to a low-toned palate defined by leafy black currant, cedar and huckleberry flavors. What makes this red stand out is that it forgoes the easy softness and sweet, intense fruit that’s typical of affordable Chilean reds in favor of savory complexity, firm tannins and real structure.
At the Table
Avoid sweet ingredients when pairing food with the Siegel 1234 Reserva: This wine will shine when enjoyed with savory meat dishes. Mushrooms, legumes, root vegetables and dried or fresh herbs will bridge to the wine’s earthy side and offer a contrast to its black currant notes. Red meat, game and pork dishes will work beautifully, especially if richly sauced or braised.
