Description:
A fine, medium-bodied dry red heaving with ripe, soft blackcurrant fruit, firm tannins and a long elegant finish.

Deep red in colour with good concentration, this wine maintains a nice balance between its fresh fruit and notes from oak aging. Tart and sweet cherries as well as blackcurrant subtly intermingle with toasted notes lead to a well-balanced palate. Medium-bodied, with firm tannins, and good grip; juicy on the palate with bright acidity.

The grapes were hand-picked from late April to the second week of May, taken to the winery in plastic boxes, gently crushed, and deposited into stainless steel tanks for immediate fermentation at 26C-30C (79F-86F). Because the grapes that go into this wine come from different blocks of the same vineyard, post-fermentation maceration time ranged between 12 and 20 days. 33% of the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for approximately 6 to 8 months, depending on the development of each lot to round out the wine and add texture to the palate. Once the final blend was made, the wine was stabilized and lightly filtered before bottling.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon.

Producer Information

The Errazuriz Estate was founded in 1870 when Don Maximiano Errazuriz planted his first vineyards at Panquehue in the Aconcagua Valley - 100km North of the capital. Recognising that this valley, with its cool, rainy winters, hot, dry summers and moist Pacific Ocean breezes, was ideal for growing grapes, Don Maximiano sent for the finest clones from France and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world class vineyard.
Today, the tradition of quality lives on with Don Maximiano's descendant Eduardo Chadwick. Eduardo is the sixth generation of his family to be involved in the wine business. Eduardo has overseen the modernisation of the winemaking technology at this historic Estate whilst maintaining a distinct identity for its wines. Dedicated to producing estate grown wines of superior quality, Errazuriz has built a reputation as the "Premier Family Wine Estate of Chile".
Errazuriz's philosophy is best expressed by Don Maximiano who said, "From the best land, the best wine." Vina Errazuriz believe in the concept of 'terroir' and strive to produce the finest wines by controlling every stage of the winemaking process, from grape growing in the Aconcagua and Casablanca valleys, to winemaking with the most natural techniques. An emphasis is placed on the delicate handling of the wines, with the aim of producing wines with elegance and complexity.
