Cabernet Sauvignon – País | 2017
Color: Bright ruby-red.
Harvest notes: Throughout the entire 2016-2017 growing season, the maximum and minimum temperatures were higher than the historical records. An intense heat wave, along with the scarce winter precipitations, led to an accelerated ripening process which in turn resulted in an early harvest that started between two and four weeks in advance regarding the normal dates. The Maipo Valley yields were generally lower than expected, but grapes were healthy and showed a good concentration.
Tasting notes: Of bright ruby-red colour, this wine is somewhat austere on the nose but shows a pleasant varietal typicity of red fruits, such as raspberries, and notes of liquorice, cedar and dried herbs, all seasoned with a floral touch that comes from the added dash of País variety. It feels juicy on the palate, with a delicious acidity and well-structured tannins that make it light-bodied and easy to drink. Toasted notes, hints of black chocolate and delicate traces of well-integrated wood emerge on its ending.
Recommended serving temperature: between 18 and 20˚ C
