Las Higueras Vineyard
Maule Valley
Cabernet Franc
2014 – Lot 62

Dry-farmed

“This vineyard dry-farmed in the Maule has provided a very balanced and expressive Cabernet Franc, with complexity and nuances, fine tannins and good freshness.” – LG

12 Barrels Cab Franc
3642 bottles filled in Nov 2015

Acidez titulable (g / l) 5,78
pH 3,42
Azúcar residual (g / l) 2,19
Alcohol (% vol) 14.2

The Vineyard:

  • Terrace of alluvial soils above the Archibueno River
  • Having to returned to cultivate the soils, and having pruned much of the dead-wood last year we are pleasantly surpised at how the vineyard is perking up again. It will be a few years of hard work before we can achieve everything we want, but so far: proper balanced pruning, ploughing, manure and very little irrigation are working wonders. In fact we should be able to dry-farm 100% this vintage.

Elaboración:

  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Conical oval shaped lagar type fermenter
  • Caps punched down by hand.
  • Lignified stems re-introduced after crush.
  • Yeasts native (we used wine from Cab Franc 2o14 vintage to a pie de cuba)
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank, no nada
  • Pinch of sulfites after malolactic that did finish before winter began unlike the Carignans

Crianza:

  • Aged in barrels over two winters— barrels for this wine come from Almaviva after two uses: Sylvain, Berger & Fils &Nadalie

 “Fresh, very Franc, a little broader in the shoulders– well-braced”

I also got to taste the 2014 Las Higueras Vineyard bottling (marked lot #62). This vineyard in the Caliboro zone of Maule has provided a very balanced and expressive Cabernet Franc, with complexity and nuances, fine tannins and good freshness. 3,642 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2015, having spent two winters in barrel.

This is a solid cabernet franc with beautiful density and intense. Wonderfully structured with firm and velvety tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs a year or two of bottle age.

Voluptuoso y con agarre, de los que piden esos gordos cortes de carne jugosa. También para la guarda.

Las Higueras Vineyard Maule Valley Cabernet Franc 2013  – Lot # 52 – 93 Pts
New to Derek Mossman’s extensive range of goodies in 2013, this is a rather unusual bush vine Cabernet Franc, showing classic notes of graphite and cut grass backed up by sinewy, well integrated tannins and supporting acidity. An impressive début. Drink 2018-24

Las Higueras Vineyard Maule Valley Cabernet Franc 2013  – Lot # 52 – 92 Pts
Let’s see if I can find names that can be reused from vintage to vintage, using the vineyard designation, like the case of their Cabernet Franc 2013 Las Higueras Vineyard from Maule. This was sourced from dry-farmed, head-pruned old Cabernet Franc vines planted on a terrace of alluvial soils near the Perquilauquen river. It matured in barrel over two winters. The Pirque Cabernet Franc is their first wine to sell out year after year, so they had to find more Cabernet Franc, and they finally got this, from two vineyards. It shows the mixture of varietal and place characteristics, plus the freshness from the year. It has more developed, earthier aromas. 3,371 bottles were filled in November 2014 from 11 barrels. This is lot #52.

Vinous – Antonio Galloni, Feb 2017
Las Higueras Vineyard Maule Valley Cabernet Franc 2013  – Lot # 52 – 91 Pts
Opaque ruby. Ripe cherry and dark berries on the deeply perfumed nose, complicated by hints of licorice, dark chocolate and pipe tobacco that build in the glass. Plush, expansive cherry and black currant flavors show very good depth and a refreshing touch of mint that emerges with air. Finishes smooth, sweet and impressively long, delivering solid thrust, a hint of bitter chocolate and velvety, even tannins that come in late. Drink 2018 – 2023 Josh Raynolds

Descorchados 2017 Patricio Tapia

Especias y algunos toques torrados en la nariz. La boca es amable, tensa, con una rica acidez que lo barre todo.

Instead of buying a part of Las Higueras we have taken on all of it. Part of the job is to inspect the fruit row on row, and the other part is to taste a vertical of what we have done with the fruit : 2o17 & 2o16 barrel samples and 2o15 & 2o14 in bottle. #gwcolashiguerasvineyard #gwcoharvest2018

After years tasting our wines to sell wine, this year for the first time we are doing tastings to sell fruit — a rather special old-vine Cab Franc fruit. Instead of buying a part of Las Higueras we have taken on all of it. Part of the job is to inspect the fruit row on row, and the other part is to taste a vertical of what we have done with the fruit : 2o17 & 2o16 barrel samples and 2o15 & 2o14 in bottle. #gwcolashiguerasvineyard #gwcoharvest2018 ...

I am Happy to report Rodney and Ruby currently living in Sauzal came with the picking posse today and both (whilst knackered) agreed to continue tomorrow. It was great hear the picking banter with a Pepe ring of French and English.
