Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon - Carménère

Cabernet Sauvignon - Carménère


Winemaker’s Notes

n the Maule Valley, terroirs with a high percentage of clay determine the mineral character of our wines. The cold evening breezes from the Andes mountains caress our vineyards, causing extreme fluctuations in temperature. The resulting wines are intense in color, full of fresh fruit, highly concentrated and with mature tannins, delivering a well-balanced palate.

Selected grapes of our own production were carefully hand-harvested and then subjected to cold maceration for ten days prior to fermentation. Fermentation with selected yeasts took place in stainless steel tanks at 25°C. 40% of the wine was then aged in French and American oak barrels for six months. After blending the two varieties, the wine was kept for another three months in American and French oak barrels.

Cellaring Recommendations: Three to four years
