Errazuriz Estate Cab 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2008 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive ruby-red with a nose that shows pleasing notes of sour cherries and strawberries intermingled with tobacco. The juicy palate is medium-bodied with a solid structure, a level of acidity that is very nicely balanced by its firm yet sweet tannins, and a pleasing finish.

Errazuriz was founded in 1870 in the Aconcagua Valley, 65 miles north of the capital, Santiago, and at the foot of Mount Aconcagua, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere, and one of the seven summits of the world. Recognizing that this valley was ideal for growing grapes, with its hot, dry summers and cool Pacific Ocean breezes, Don Maximiano Errazuriz sent for the finest clones from France, and with tenacity and perseverance transformed this barren land into a world-class vineyard. Today, the tradition lives on with Eduardo Chadwick, the fifth generation of his family to lead this exceptional estate. Eduardo’s work has been colossal, bringing Errazuriz into a new era where it is acknowledged as a producer of world-class wines, and opened eyes around the globe as to Chile’s incredible and diverse sites. As an estate winery, Errazuriz strives to produce the finest wines through meticulous attention to every stage of viticulture and vinification, from grape growing in the Aconcagua, Casablanca and Curico 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. It is this dynamism and passion for wine that has made Errazuriz such an internationally respected producer of quality wines. Check us out at www.errazuriz.com Read less

Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - Errázuriz: Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 - Rotwein von Errázuriz   Kennen Sie das legendäre "The Berlin Tasting"? In Peking fand dieser Wettbewerb 2008 erneut statt. Wieder holte dort Errázuriz Gold in den Kategorien 'Fruchtigkeit' und 'Fülle', und das noch vor den Franzosen und Italienern! Dies weist erneut auf die außerordentliche Qualität chilenischer Weine hin. Dieser Cabernet Sauvignon zeigt sich in einem lebhaften Kirschrot im Glas. Das Bouquet präsentiert Kirsche und süße Preiselbeeren, die sich mit sanften, würzigen Noten vermischen, wozu sich Spuren von Tabak und abschließend Vanille finden. Am Gaumen erscheint er frisch mit einer ansprechenden Säure. Die reifen, runden, gut ausgewogenen Gerbsäuren sorgen für eine feste Struktur. Dieser Cabernet-Sauvignon mit seinem mittleren Körper und den ansprechenden Aromen zeigt sich schließlich voll roter Frucht, wie etwa von Erdbeeren. Diese Fruchtaromen werden zart ummantelt von Karamell, das aus der Fassreife resultiert.Weingut: ErrázurizLand: ChileRegion: AconcaguaRebsorte: Cabernet SauvignonAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol. %Inhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (6 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 3 - 5 Jahre ab Jahrgang Rotwein > Chile > Aconcagua Valley
