Estate Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
This wine displays an intense ruby red colour with violet hues. The nose reveals aromas of red fruit and black fruit with balsamic tones, which complements with notes of vanilla, chocolate, cherry and plums. It has a soft palate, fine-grained tannins, and refreshing acidity.
The grapes for our Estate Cabernet Sauvignon come from selected vineyards that grow in the Aconcagua and Maipo Valleys. Vineyards in the Aconcagua Valley are close to the Pacific Ocean’s coast, on rolling hills at an altitude of 100 to 300 meters above sea level. Of Mediterranean climate, the valley has moderately warm summer days and fresh evening breezes, which allows the development of intense colours and ripe flavours. The Maipo Valley, of Mediterranean climate also, is well known for the fresh morning breezes that blow in from the Andes Mountains, and for the moderate day temperatures that allow grapes to reach perfect ripeness, preserving their acidity and freshness.
The 2020 harvest was a challenging one - frost, drought and summer heatwaves were all however overcome and although quantity was down, the quality of grapes was excellent.
As opposed to last year, during this season the climate conditions favoured a higher productivity in the vineyards. Temperatures behaved within the historical frames and the season ended with mild conditions, thus allowing for a very balanced ripeness and harvest, positive in aspects of health, and generous in highly complex flavours.
