[TH] Cabernet Sauvignon, Alto Maipo - Maipo Valley, Viña Undurraga
A cedary and classy Cabernet Sauvignon, with a spice-accented nose offering ripe strawberries and black cherry aromas, graphite notes and subtle herbal hints typical of Cabernet Sauvignon wines from cool areas in Alto Maipo. Elegant and vibrant on the palate, showing fine structured tannins, which support the weight of the fruit and long, focused persistence.

All unripe, overexposed, or dehydrated berries were removed. After crushing, the grapes underwent a cold maceration under anaerobic conditions for five days. Fermentation took place at 28ºC-29ºC for 16 days with three to four daily “pump-overs”. The wine was left over its lees and skins for an additional 13 days to further its structure. It was then racked into French oak barrels, 25% of them new, where it was aged for 14 months.
