The 2014 Stella Aurea is a more elegant version of the Domus Aurea and has some grapes from plot number five that is planted with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. This is selected from the barrels of Domus that have a more elegant profile, and it has a mixture of red and black fruit (without any menthol notes) and classical Maipo character but a very different expression than Domus. Fermentation was in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts, and the élevage was in 50/50 new and used oak barrels and lasted some 18 months. The palate is subtle, with fine-grained tannins, a soft texture and a very clean, long finish. 5,490 bottles were filled in January 2016.
2014 has to be one of the finest vintages at Quebrada de Macul, with wines that remind me of the 2010 vintage. 2015 was another warm and dry year, 2016 was cooler, lighter and had some challenges, and 2017 was warm again, with low yields but without reaching the same level as other years. And 2018 could be another dream year in the making. For now, the 2014s here are superb, textbook examples of Maipo and more specifically Macul.
