Chile is made up of Regions, Subregions, Provinces and Communes. Spanning from O’Higgins to Maule Region, Valle Central has four sub-regions: Maipo, Rapel, Curico and Maule Valleys. The grapes for the 2013 vintage were sourced throughout these valleys but predominantly from the Maule Valley, which is notably one of the longest, oldest and most internationally acclaimed wine regions in Chile.
Harvest was done entirely by hand based upon taste, not numbers. Rigorous vineyard practices, including winter pruning, shoot suckering, fruit thinning and green drop ensured that vines were in perfect balance. After a three-day cold soak to extract the appropriate soft tannins, additional color and flavor, the juice was fermented and then transferred to a combination of French and American oak barrels.
The 2013 Cabernet is dark red in color, dense and ripe with notes of cherries, blackberries, cedar, spice and cola. These complex full bodied flavors and soft tannins create a long, elegant finish.
