27 October 2020

Santa Carolina has received critical acclaim in the press, here are some highlights from 2020 so far -

The Santa Carolina Herencia Carmenere 2014 is featured among the top 3 Chilean wines in Wine Spectator's October 2020 Issue -

"Powerfully structured, with graphite notes flanking the dense dark fruit and spice flavours. Supported by firm tannins and acidity. Offers a minerally finish. Showing lots of dried savory accents. Drink now through 2026"

- Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator, October 2020

The Carolina Reserva Sauvginon Blanc 2019 received 90 Points from Tim Atkin and James Suckling.

"Right up there with Chile's best value Sauvignon Blancs, and all the more commendable becase of the volumes involved, this Leyda white is made up of 30 different lots. Modern, bright and grapefruity with lime and lemongrass flavours."

- Tim Atkin MW,, October 2020.

"Lemon zest, white peaches and a whiff of green leaves. Tart green fruit and nectarines on the palate, driven by a bright streak of acidity. Fresh, simple and easy."

- James Suckling,, October 2020

The Carolina Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 received 93 Points in the James Suckling 2020 Chile Report, the highest score achieved by a Reserva level Cabernet Sauvignon.

The Santa Carolina Reserva de Familia Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 has been awarded 90 Points by Wine Spectator -

"Big and powerful, with licorice and tarry accents to the dark currant, plum and asian spice flavours. Ferrous and green herbal notes show on the firmly tannic finish. Drink now through 2024."

- Kim Marcus, Wine Spectator, October 2020
