Red Blend | 2015
Color: Cherry-red colour
Harvest note: The 2015 growing season was characterized by one of the highest heat summations of the last years, with minimum temperatures that were above the recorded historical averages. Maule showed more precipitations than the average of the last three seasons. Although harvest began earlier, towards the end of the ripening period temperatures dropped, allowing it to progress at a slow pace and the grapes to develop better compounds of aromas and flavours. In this year’s reds, the quality and ripeness of their tannins is especially noteworthy.
Tasting notes: Of intense cherry-red colour with a bright ruby rim, this wine already shows its great concentration in the glass. Very clean and with good intensity on the nose, its delicious expression of red and black fruits, such as raspberries, redcurrants and plums are intertwined with notes of tobacco and hints of pepper. On the palate it is possible to sense the wine’s structure, which comes from its 37% Cabernet Sauvignon; a soft and velvety sensation that derives from its 34% Carmenere, and an expression of fresh fruit, with a juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins, provided by its 17% carignan. The additional bits of other varieties make of this a long and juicy wine, very easy to enjoy. Drink as of now through to 2015.
Recommended serving temperature: between 18 and 20˚ C
