More Wine Reviews and Ratings
|Sara M WSET Advanced reviewed this wine as follows:|
This is a fresh, intense and complex Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of blackberries, tobacco and coffee. There are also prominent vegetal notes of cabbage and capsicum-it reminds me of taking a bite out of a fresh green pepper! The tannins are ripe and chewy, so the wine may benefit from 5-7 years in the cellar, but can be enjoyed today as well. This would pair well with beef and lamb roasts. It is best to decant this wine at least 30 minutes before drinking.
|The grapes were hand picked into 14-kg boxes|
and transported to the cellar, where they were carefully inspected, crushed, and deposited into medium-volume stainless steel tanks. Alcoholic fermentation took place at temperatures that varied from 24º to 28ºC with three daily pumpovers. After fermentation was complete, the new wine remained on its skins, and depending
on the development of the individual lots, total skin contact was 7 to 39 days for optimal extraction of tannins and colour. The final blend was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, 15% of which were new.
