Oveja Negra Winemakers Selection Cabernet Syrah 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Oveja Negra Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon Syrah comes from the Maule Valley, 260 km (162 mi) south of Santiago. The valley features tremendous geographic diversity and a Mediterranean climate with well-defined seasons, including a warm, dry summer with a significant difference between daytime and night time temperatures and a cold, rainy winter. The average annual precipitation in the valley is 670-700 mm (26-28 in) and occurs primarily in the winter, which ultimately results in greater concentration in the wines. The lack of rain throughout the rest of the year encourages the control of plantvigor, keeps the grape berries small, and helps the bunches ripen uniformly.The Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah vines come from the La Esperanza vineyard. They were planted 9 years ago and are vertically positioned. The Cabernet Sauvignon is planted at a density of 1.2 x 2.2 m and the Syrah at 1.5 x 2.2 m. Canopy management for both varieties begins in early December with superficial deleafing of the basal shoots exposed to the morning sun. Both varieties present a naturally balanced yield of 8-10 tons per hectare, and therefore no cluster thinning was necessary. Vintage: Grapes: 68% Cabernet and 32% Syrah Climate: Warm Mediterranean, with extended dry summers and cold, rainy winters. Soils: Young alluvial soils in evolution, in low position and moderate fertility derived from conglomerates, breccia, tuff, and volcanic ash. Most of the soils are loam to clay-loam in texture. Alcohol: 14% Sugar: 3.4g/l Harvest: Cabernet Sauvignon: April 29 Syrah: April 22 Climatic Data: Average maximum temperature (October -April ): 26.66°C (80°F) Average minimum temperature (October -April ): 9.92°C (50°F) Average Daily Temperature Oscillation (October -April ): 16.74°C (63°F) Average Rainfall Winter (Mayo-Agosto ): 346.2 mm (13.6 in) Annual Rainfall : 460.5 mm (18.11 in)

Easy going crowd pleaser with a generous amount of oak. Great pairing for smoked sausage!
