Vineyards: The grapes come from our estate vineyards in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago in the Maule Valley. The soils are derived from volcanic ash and consist of sandy to sandy-loam earth. The vineyards are flat and receive an excellent exposure to sunlight. The yields are carefully controlled so as to produce concentrated and elegant wines.
Climate: The Villa Alegre region of Chile has a Mediterranean- style climate. Winter rains are plentiful and summers are dry with marked temperature variations between day and night, thereby allowing the grapes to obtain superb tannin development as well as excellent aromas and color concentration.
The grapes were harvested by hand in the middle of April. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging from 26º to 28ºC during a seven-day period. Prior to bottling, the wine is stabilized and filtered carefully to keep all the fruit.
Notes from our winemaker:
Our Cabernet Sauvignon has a rich and concentrated ruby-violet colour. The smell has blackcurrant and black cherries. Elegant with good balance. lts tannins are soft and mature. A great choice to match with red meats, herby dishes or mature cheeses
