100% Cabernet Sauvignon
This wine is obtained from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes grown in San Pedro´s vineyards in the Maipo Valley.
Grapes are hand-harvested in 20-kg boxes early in the morning to avoid high temperatures. Grapes are harvested with 24-25º brix.The vineyard yield is 6- 8 tons per hectare.
When the grapes reach the cellar, they are kept cold for a pre-fermentative maceration for 2 to 3 days. This pre-fermentative maceration ensures a gentle extraction of color, taste and aromas from the skin. Then the alcoholic fermentation takes place for 8 to 10 days reaching temperatures lower than 27°C.
Pump overs takes place 3 times/day. Once the wine is finished, a post-fermentative maceration is undertaken, which lasts for 1-2 weeks. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels, where it remains for 12 months, 30% of these barrels are new. The wine is clarified with natural egg whites and after a very thick filtration is bottled.
Violet with gentle brick tones.
This is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon, very elegant. Aromas are very intense due to its bottle aging it has earthy aromas with eucalyptus tones that speak of its origin in the Maipo Valley. This combines with vanilla and toast notes that integrate very well with the wine.
this is a high-bodied wine, with ever-present ripe tannins that have evolved through bottle aging. Once again, the elegance detected in the aroma appears, combining delicate fruit with well-integrated and balanced oak.
