MEDALLA REAL WAS BORN IN 1983 IN HONOR OF FRANCISCO GARCÍA DE HUIDOBRO, AN ANCESTOR OF THE FOUNDING FAMILY OF VIÑA SANTA RITA AND MARQUÉS DE CASA REAL, WHO ESTABLISHED THE FIRST MINT IN CHILE. TO COMMEMORATE THE BICENTENNIAL OF THIS EVENT, A MEDAL WAS COINED WITH HIS PROFILE AND THE SYMBOL OF THE SPANISH ROYAL CROWN. THE STYLE OF MEDALLA REAL WINES CLEARLY AND INTENSELY REFLECTS THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE FLAVOURS AND AROMAS OF EACH VARIETY. ELEGANT AND COMPLEX, THEY ARE WELL BODIED POSSESSING A GOOD CONCENTRATION AND PERSISTENCE.
IN 1987, BEFORE THE MAIPO VALLEY HAD GAINED GLOBAL RECOGNITION, A BOTTLE OF 1984 MEDALLA REAL CABERNET SAUVIGNON CHANGED THE HISTORY OF CHILEAN WINE CULTURE. THE WINE DEFEATED OVER 35 OTHER CABERNETS, INCLUDING WINES FROM FRANCE, SPAIN AND CALIFORNIA, WITH MEDALLA REAL BECOMING THE FIRST CHILEAN WINE TO WIN THE PARIS WINE OLYMPICS. MEDALLA REAL GOLD MEDAL IS IN HONOUR OF THAT AWARD.
THE MEDALLA REAL GRAN RESERVA RANGE REPRESENTS THE VAST DIVERSITY AND RICHNESS IN CHILE’S TERROIRS. THE VITICULTURISTS AND WINEMAKERS AT SANTA RITA HAVE CAREFULLY SELECTED THE BEST WINEGROWING REGIONS IN THE COUNTRY TO FIND THE TRUEST EXPRESSION OF THE TERROIR TO MAXIMISE THE POTENTIAL OF THE VARIETY.
