Guardián, Vuelo Mágico, and Mito were Mancura’s most celebrated lines at the national and international levels this year.
Mancura’s portfolio of wines ends 2021 with truly outstanding scores. The winery, whose name pays homage to the mythical character of the Andean condor, demonstrated its vast experience and knowledge in the production of New World wines this year with wines that are a faithful reflection of the different terroirs found throughout Chile.
The Vuelo Mágico line was spotlighted this year for its 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, with 92 points from the American critic James Suckling and 91 points from the British critic Tim Atkin.

Another of the brands that truly shone this year was Guardián, whose wines aim to pay tribute to Chile’s national heritage with exceptional quality and accessible prices. The 2018 Guardián Carignan received 91 points from James Suckling, who praised its aromas, silky texture, and fresh finish, and the 2019 Guardián Chardonnay earned 91 points and a Silver Medal in this year’s The Drinks Business Global Masters competition.
