Tasting notes

This new winemaker's proposal from sustainable winery Viña Echeverria, combines juicy and flavoursome Cabernet Sauvignon with Petit Syrah, Carmenere and Malbec. It is aged for 8 months in oak. Delightful drinking, smooth and full of ripe juicy fruit from Chile´s fertile sun-drenched soils, this wine is for savouring happy moments.
 

Producer note

Viña Echeverria is a family-owned estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverria family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverria is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña Echeverria combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with a modern state of the art winery, to produce a range of over 20 quality wines from 9 different grape varieties. It has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.

Vineyard note

Using a model of Microviticulture, the vineyard is separated into 200 small areas. Each of these areas is managed like an individual vineyard, obtaining the best quality from each grape and each vine.

Viticulture

Hand-picked into 18 Kg. boxes and carried to the winery immediately after cutting. Carefully selected before processing. The harvest dates were as follows: Cabernet Sauvignon: April 12, 2012 Carmenere: April 26, 2012 Malbec : April 5, 2012 Petit Syrah: April 3, 2012

Vinification

Fermented in 15.000 and 25.000 litre stainless steel tanks for 7-10 days at 25-28ºC controlled temperature to dryness with selected and native yeasts (80/20). Extended maceration for additional 3 - 5 days. 100% malolactic fermentation. Aged in 225 litre new French oak barrels for 10 to 12 months.
