Red pepper, raspberry and blackberry fruit - very quaffable and easy Chilean Cabernet.
These attractively packaged wines are blended especially for Hallgarten Druitt and show the kind of style and value that has put Chilean wines on the map over the past few years. Wonderful value for money.
The vines are vertically positioned and spaced at 1.5 x 2.2 metres apart, allowing easy access to the drip irrigated vines. The crops are green harvested to eliminate short shoots and concentrate the flavours in the berries. Most of the grapes are hand picked, although a portion is mechanically harvested to ensure the optimal level of ripeness and freshness.
The grapes were carefully sorted and destemmed. Fermentation took place in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for a period of 15 to 18 days, with three to four daily pumpovers. The wine was then stabilised for 15 to 20 days and earthfiltered prior to bottling.
Complex with grilled red pepper, raspberry and blackberry fruit, dried plums mingled with tobacco and mocha. A Cabernet Sauvignon with a velvety texture, soft and fleshy tannins and a nicely integrated finish.
Enjoy with red meats, roasted lamb and roasted red peppers
