CyT Late Harvest

Concha y Toro Late Harvest represents the winery’s passion and commitment to showcasing the high quality and variety of wine styles that Chilean terroir can produce. Concha y Toro Late Harvest was launched in 1991, with the 1988 vintage.

The grapes for this exquisite dessert wine are hand hand-picked from the Lourdes Vineyard, which is ideally located in the Maule Valley in close proximity to the Claro River. The unique microclimate, created by the river’s influence, of foggy mornings and bright, sunny days is perfect for the development of the “noble rot” botrytis cinerea.

Exclusively available in half bottles, this wonderful wine complements the wide range of Concha y Toro wines and offers wine lovers the chance to enjoy a Concha y Toro wine with every course from appetizer to dessert.
