Caballo Loco 18

Caballo Loco 18 has an intense aromatic profile of dark cherries, cassis, espresso with elegant underlying sweet cooking spices. Full-bodied, with a beautiful lingering finish.

Caballo Loco literally translates into English as ‘crazy horse’. This wine is very unconventional because it is made from a blend of grape varieties, and grapes from various different years.

One of Chile’s top wines, Caballo Loco is named after one of Valdivieso’s previous winemakers Jorge Coderch, who created the Cabollo Loco over 12 years ago, a winemaker who was long referred to as ‘the crazy horse’.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Carmenere and Merlot, the wine is created using a solera system, similar to that found in the production of Sherry. This simple but effective process produces a series of non-vintage wines, where at least 50% of the blend has come from the previous Caballo Loco.

Following the barrel maturation of the current vintage/edition, it’s then blended with the previous edition.  The new edition complete, 50% is then bottled and 50% goes back into the solera system for use in the next ‘crazy horse’.

This interesting process enables Valdivieso to create a complex wine with unique characteristics for each edition, characteristics only achievable from adding aged wine to the blend.

Valdivieso’s history goes back to 1879, when Don Alberto Valdivieso founded Champagne Valdivieso S.A., the first sparkling wine house in South America.

In the early 1980s they then began to produce still wines and, ever since, Valdivieso has obtained outstanding results and has become the most awarded Chilean winery in the history of the Challenge International du Vin in Bordeaux.

Well-travelled Kiwi winemaker, Brett Jackson, has settled in Chile and much of Valdivieso’s success in recent years can be credited to his talent. Based in Lontue, the company has a wealth of vineyards and the quality of the terroir is expressed by the single-vineyard wines.

The whole range encapsulates everything that Chile excels at: rich, vibrant flavours and smooth, glossy textures – and the wines deserve the multitude of gongs they have picked up in recent years.
