Echeverria Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2014

 

Vina Echeverria is a long established Chilean family owned and managed estate, producing high quality wines. Their 75 hectares of vineyards, in one single block, and their state of the art winery are located on the outskirts of the town of Molina in the Curicó Valley, 200Km south of Santiago.
Vina Echeverria only make wine from their estate grown grapes, all of which originate from ungrafted select clones of pre-phylloxera French rootstock of Cabernet Sauvignon (48%), Sauvignon Blanc (30%), Chardonnay (20%) and Merlot (2%). High priority is given to care in the vineyards and canopy management to control vegetative growth. Exposure to sunlight and air movement on the leaves are maximised, leading to almost organic viticulture with the minimum use of agrochemical products.
All members of the Echeverria family are involved at the winery making an unbeatable team, bonded together by the strongest forces of all: deep family roots, a shared passion for winemaking, an uncompromising search for excellence and a total commitment to their customers' satisfaction.
