TECHNICAL SHEET Variety 90% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Carmenere Appellation Central Valley Harvest Hand picked on April 2005 Vineyards Grapes coming from vineyards located in Maule and Rapel Valleys. The soil is stony and shallow. Winemaking Grapes were cold macerated for 2 days. Fermented in stainless steel tanks at a temperature between 25° and 28° C. Malolactic fermentation done in tanks. 40% of the blend was aged with American and French oak. Macerated for 15 days. About Cabernet Sauvignon The most famous, best traveled red grape variety, originally from Bordeaux, France. It has a distinctive, juicy, blackcurrant scent and flavor, which may be balanced on the palate by tough tannins. Traditionally, wines using this grape variety were made to keep, the maturing process taking many years, during which time the tannin content would soften and marry in. Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon tend to be made to mature sooner, accentuating the fruity character of the grape and restraining the tannins. Wine composition Alcohol 13,5 % by vol Total Acidity 5.5 g/L in tartaric acid pH 3,4 Residual Sugar 6,5 g/L Tasting notes Dark red color.
