Variety: Cabernet Sauvignon (75%) / Merlot (25%)
Appellation: D.O. Villa Alegre
Winemaker: Daniel Sepúlveda

VINIFICATION

The Merlot grapes were harvested at the end of March while the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were harvested at the end of April. In order to extract color and aromas the must underwent skin contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging from 24° to 26°C during a seven-day period. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot were fermented separately and then blended together. Prior to bottling, the blend is stabilized and filtered.


NOTES FROM OUR WINEMAKER

Our Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot has an intense red-violet color. Its aromas remind us of ripe red fruits with hints of menthol and jam. In the mouth it is soft and round with tannins that are sweet and ripe.
