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.
