CABERNET SAUVIGNON

The grapes for this wine come from El Romeral, our property located in the Maipo Valley, a region well-known for the top quality of its red wines. The clay loam soils of alluvial origin, as well as the moderately fresh and dry climate, bestow the terroir with ideal characteristics to obtain well-structured and highly persistent wines. The vineyard was planted under a high-density system (10,100 plants/ha) to obtain 1 kg of grapes per plant and wines of great concentration and of the highest quality.

After being harvested, the grapes were crushed and underwent a cold pre-fermentative maceration (5º C) during three days to obtain fruity aromas and enhance the intensity of the color in the wine. Fermentation took place at 25-26º C to extract silky tannins. After finishing the malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged for 12 months in previously used French oak barrels. After bottling, the wine was left to evolve during other six months before it was released into the market.

Aroma: red fruits that remind of red-currants, plums and raspberries, with notes of tobacco and black chocolate.
