Marques Cabernet Sauvignon
Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon. Origin: Puente Alto Vineyard, Maipo Valley. Soil: River bench associated soils, alluvial, stony, poor in nutrients and highly permeable due to the gravel sub-soil. Climate: Semiarid Mediterranean. Inuenced by the Andes, this is the coolest part of the Maipo Valley. An ample day-to-night temperature variation pattern stretches grape ripening, concentrating fruit and intensifying aromas. Harvest: Hand picked. From rst to third week of April. Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels. Winemaker’s notes: Deep red. Unctuous cherry, cassis, cedar, blackberry, black tar and smoke-led presence. Tight and focused with a deep concentration of avours framed by rm tannins. A smooth, almost silky texture masks the rm tannic structure beneath, which really comes to the fore at the beginning of the long nish.
