Winemaking details
This wine was grown near San Juan de Pirque in the Maipo valley and farmed with traditional methods. It was allowed to ferment naturally in open-top fermenters, outside of a little help through cold harvest nights with hot water bottles. Caps were punched down by hand and pressing was strictly manual. The wine was barrelled in neutral oak of three or more uses for two winters.
Varietal composition 85% Cab Sauv / 15% Cab Franc
Winemakers Pilar Miranda / Alvaro Peña
Comments & Critics Vivid ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed bouquet of fresh red berries, cherry pit, potpourri and mocha, with hints of black pepper and anise adding complexity. Spicy and expansive in the mouth, offering lively cherry and raspberry flavors and intense floral character. Silky tannins add grip and shape to the long, sappy finish. This wine received no new oak. 91 Josh Raynolds – Steve Tanzer’s Int. Wine Cellar
