De Martino Red Blend Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec Organic 2009
De Martino’s organic wines are a true reflection of the ability of Chile’s terrior to produce high-quality wines, while maintaining complete respect for the environment. A percentage of the proceeds from every bottle sold goes to CODEFF, a local charity that preserves and conserves Chile’s beautiful countryside. Hand-harvested at the end of April, the grapes were carefully selected via use of a sorting table upon arriving at the winery. They immediately underwent a cold-soak for 4-7 days in stainless steel tanks at 8-10°C. Fermentation then took place over a 9-day period at 26-28°C. The wine was left in contact with the skins for 28 days with periodic pump-overs and aeration before being transferred to French oak barriques of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd use for 14 months. Full malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was filtered and refrigerated then bottled and aged for a year before release.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Food Pairings for De Martino Red Blend Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec Organic
Elegant floral notes lended from the Malbec combine with aromas of tobacco and spice typical of Cabernet. They are framed by vanilla notes contributed by the oak aging. On the palate, the acidity and freshness are prominent but are balanced by soft, round tannins.
