Haras de Pirque Cabernet Sauvignon Élégance 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Soft yet firm, and sweet yet stylish. The nose is dark and loaded with coffee and mocha, while in the mouth the blackberry and cassis really flow forth. With length and size compounded by firm, integrated tannins, this is a very solid signature wine for this new winery.

In 1991, after a highly successful business career in Chile's private sector, entrepreneur Eduardo Matte acquired an estate that he would later name Haras de Pirque, in the southwestern part of Pirque, a prestigious winegrowing area situated in the Maipo Valley. Eduardo Matte's objectives included launching a major winery project, and expanding and improving the existing thoroughbred farm. The property- today covering 600 hectares - gently ascends the lower slopes of a spur of the Andes Mountains. In these foothills, between 1992 and 1993, one hundred and twenty hectares of vineyards were planted, mainly with the reds Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenère, and the whites Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Haras de Pirque's name honors the country´s oldest thoroughbred breeding stud, founded in 1892.The stud has four extensively pedigreed stallions that have sired exceptional offspring. The farm's success is reflected by a long succession of trophies won in the nation's main horseracing events and an unrivaled leadership in all of the sport's local categories: broodmare sires, stallions and general standings. In addition, the haras is a prominent supplier for breeders and owners in South and North America, and maintains approximately 30 racehorses in the national competition circuit. Along with winegrowing and thoroughbred raising, Eduardo Matte gives free rein to his other passions, one of which is the collecting of old carriages, all drawn by suitably bred horses.The collection currently features 18 models with a stable of 30 horses that, together with four thoroughbred stallions and nearly two hundred mares and foals, trot and gallop through Haras de Pirque's wide, green pastures Read less

Wonderful wine now drinking fine 7 years out. Great colour. Ripe dark black fruit rimmed with hints of plush earthiness, bitter chocolate and toasted oak. The younger vintages have more interesting toast to them great grip with focus, with suave toast carrying the dark currant and blackberry as coffee (less in younger vintages), minerally. This is mountain cab from Chile at almost its finest. (Tiene etanol muy elegante)

It’s all in the name- Elegance , describes this charming Chilean reserve Cab to a tee. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 10% Syrah all from estate vineyards in the Maipo Valley. Fermented with natural yeasts and aged 16 months in French oak barrels. Wine Spectator scored it 90 points and said “Ripe and focused, with suave toast carrying the dark currant and blackberry as coffee, mineral and vanilla notes ripple underneath. Lengthy finish, too, with nice, latent concentration.” Only 1,200 cases were produced. Limited. not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator
