Red Blend 2013

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Chile / Central Valley
Grapes: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 % Merlot, 25% Syrah

A luscious and fruit-forward Red Blend, these grapes were hand-picked and hand-selected from 17-year-old vineyards planted in clay and alluvial soils in the Colchagua and Maipo Valleys. A dry climate and proximity to the Andes produce wide diurnal temperature swings, maintaining the grapes’ acidity levels while encouraging full flavor ripening. Grapes are destemmed before undergoing a cold maceration to extract black fruit notes. The must is fermented at 82 - 88°F with 3 pumpovers per day. After a total of 21 days’ skin contact, half of the wine is aged in American and French oak.

tasting note

Ripe plums, black berries aromas with touché of spices framed by vanilla and coconut notes from the ageing oak. Juicy and structured with a round texture given by ripe tannins. Loads of ripe black fruit such as black berries and black cherries nicely combined with the complex cedar and vanilla from the ageing oak.

food pairing

Brilliant with barbecue, burgers, roasts, stews, and chocolate desserts.
