Cabernet Sauvignon

The vintage

This season started by moderate rainfall, slightly below average, and continued with a very cold spring. The beginning of summer was cool, but gradually temperatures increased and remained very stable, staying below 35°C throughout the season. This allowed for an ideal ripening process, yielding grapes of great potential. A vintage that will be talked about in the years to come.

Location

Stretching from the Coastal range to the foothills of the Andes mountains, Colchagua’s Mediterranean climate and privileged terroirs have made it a place of choice to produce quality wines in Chile. Los Vascos estate lies at the foothills of the coastal range, 200km South West of Santiago, in the cooler part of Colchagua where the vines benefit from the natural cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean.

Terroir

The soils are of medium depth and are made of sand and clay. Combined with the breeze from the near Pacific Ocean, they allow for the production of fresh and well-balanced grapes.

Vinification

Maceration is carried out for up to 15 days, seeking to maintain fruit expression without neglecting the typical structure of the varietal. The wine is then stored in cement vats to maintain the freshness and aromatic expression, characteristic of the variety.

Tasting

With a ruby red color, it initially surprises with its intense aromatic profile, showcasing predominant notes of fruit like black cherry, strawberry, blackberry yogurt and raspberry. Subsequently, spicy undertones of black pepper and laurel emerge, bringing freshness and complexity. On the palate, it shows good volume, with gentle tannins, refreshing acidity, creating a juicy and persistent wine that will have a nice evolution in the bottle. A wine that reflects the excellent quality of a vintage with ideal climatic conditions.
