Valdivieso Cabernet Franc Lontué Valley Single Vineyard Reserve 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Cabernet Franc is one of Chile´s fine little gems. Once the vineyards reach a certain age, the climate and soil encourage the fruit to ripen fully and develop aromas and flavours rarely reached elsewhere in the world. Chilean Cabernet Franc is free of the green vegetal character often found elsewhere; here the herbal notes are very delicate and balanced by a rich structure.

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
