Grapes : Cabernet Sauvignon
Very bright and lively red with violet hues in color. The very intense nose offers a combination of red fruit aromas recalling plum and raspberry with a light touch of vanilla, toffee and caramel developed as it aged in French and American oak. On the palate, the tannins are both friendly and potent, and the finish is long, fresh, and persistent.
The grapes are harvested in accordance with strict monitoring for ripeness and tasting the berries prior to harvest. Once picked, the grapes are transported to the cellar, destemmed, very gently crushed by rollers, and deposited directly to the fermentation tank. During fermentation, the must is controlled daily and temperatures are maintained at 25º–28°C, so that the fermentation and extraction are smooth and generate more volume in the palate. Once the alcoholic fermentation is over, we give way to spontaneous malolactic fermentation, seeking greater development of aromas and complexity in the palate. Then the different lots are blended, the new wine is aged with French and American oak and then bottled.
