Potro de Piedra Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon/Cabernet Franc 2010 

Producer:               Vina Requingua

Variety:                  85% Cabernet Sauvignon & 15% Cabernet Franc

Location:                  Curico Valley

Altitude:                  200 metres above sea level

Alcohol:                  15% ABV

Tasting Note:          An intense and brooding nose: warm liquorice, tobacco smoke and caramelised fruit. The palate is full bodied with firm tannins and a bracing structure. There is plenty of flavour here too; plums, black cherry, crème de cassis and wild strawberries. This is a serious and well made wine.  

Vinification Process:            A warm fermentation and maceration takes place over 30 days with regular pigeage and remontage. The wine is then aged in new French oak for 18 months.

Food Pairing: This calls for something big, rich and meaty. Herb crusted beef rib, venison with red wine jus or just T-bone steak cooked over coals.
