Aconcagua Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
This complex Aconcagua Cuvée Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby red colour with violet hues. On the nose, red and black fruits, liquorice, and a soft note of mint are all framed by the barrels' spicy notes such as nutmeg, some vanilla, and chocolate. On the palate, it shows depth, freshness, and very elegant, long-lasting tannins.
The grapes were rigorously selected from our vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley. The Mediterranean climate in this area presents moderately warm summer days with cool evening breezes. The high thermal oscillation between day and night temperatures during the weeks before harvest triggers high concentrations of polyphenols, which intensifies the wine's colour.
The 2019 season was dry and warm. Nonetheless, the absence of rains ensured the splendid conditions of our grapes. The harvest goes earlier as this was a dry season. The quality of our vineyards was demonstrated once again given the climatic fluctuations, droughts, and high temperatures, delivering grapes of excellent sanitary conditions and superb concentration, in benefit of preserving the aromas and acidity of the wines.
Grapes were hand-picked, sorted, destemmed, crushed and placed in stainless-steel tanks for fermentation. Afterwards, the wine was kept in used French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and ageing for 10 months
