Viña Dagaz (Dagaz is a Celtic rune that means ‘the beginning of a new path’) was founded in 2015 by renowned winemaker Marco Puyo and Patricio Gomez-Barris. After many years exploring the different areas of Colchagua whilst working on behalf of other wineries Marco felt that the temperate Mediterranean climate and granitic soils of Pumanque offered a unique opportunity to create something more personal. Drawing inspiration from the granitic soils of Côtes du Rhône, Galicia and Rioja, he wanted to create something that authentically represented the terroir.
The intensity of aromas on the nose presents black and red fruits and a great mineral content coming from the granite that constitutes the soil. In the mouth richness is allied to elegance, soft tannins, and a fine acidity that keeps things fresh and vibrant. The finish is long, multi-layered, and expansive. Complex and with notable structure from the tannins suggesting cellaring potential. Delicious now but likely to gain ever greater interest with time.
