Red Blend 2017

Certified Sustainable, Organic or Biodynamic Green Certified

Region: Chile / Central Valley
Grapes: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlotand 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.

The grapes were selected and hand-harvested during the first week of April for the Merlot, then the Syrah starting the second one and finally the Cabernet during the last week of April.

tasting note

Has a deep red ruby color. It has ripe plum aromas, with black berries and some spices framed by vanilla notes coming from the ageing. With a good structure, juicy loaded ripe black fruit combined with some complex notes of oak.

food pairing

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