Valdivieso Caballo Loco Grand Cru Apalta 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Colour: Exuberant deep dark red violet. Nose: Intense and complex aromas, some ripe dark berries, blackcurrant, plums, black pepper with hints of sweet spices. Palate: Soft tannins with a firm structure. Elegant subtle spices from the maturation in oak barrels are present. The wine has a lovely texture and long persistence. Ageing Recommendations: Enjoy the concentration now or cellar for up to 7 years.

Producing quality wines requires careful and balanced management in every stage of the winemaking process. We place tremendous emphasis on our efforts in the vineyards to ensure the best grapes, which is a determining factor in the quality and distinctive character of each wine. In the winery, we conserve the qualities of the grapes by intervening as little as possible during the vinification process in order to avoid any loss of concentration or complexity. Our basic rule for barrel-aged wines is that the contribution of the oak should complement and reinforce the characteristics of the fruit and never hide or overwhelm it. Read less
