TASTE
This sophisticated Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of mint and tobacco alongside its classic blackcurrant and cherry fruit. The palate is enhanced by a touch of vanilla oak, which unites the juicy and savoury characters into a well-balanced whole

PRODUCER
Morandé was founded in 1996 by Pablo Morandé, and found immediate recognition both domestically and abroad. Morandé are true pioneers – they were the first family to develop the Casablanca D.O., recognising the fantastic potential of this cool-climate wine region. They also led the way in reviving old viticultural regions such as Maule and Itata, working with old dry-farmed bush vines and unconventional varieties such as Carignan, País and Cinsault. All of the wines are produced with grapes from Morandé’s own vineyards. Their winemaking philosophy is guided by seeking the right terroir for each grape variety, and with significant vineyard holdings they are well placed to achieve this.

VINEYARD
The fruit for this wine comes from Morandé’s vineyards in the Maipo Valley. The vines are trellised to vertical shoot position and guyot pruned. The soils are mostly of alluvial origin and are silty-clay with gravel. Irrigation is tightly controlled to ensure balanced vine growth and steady maturation of the grapes. Harvest took place in early to mid-April.

WINERY
The grapes were crushed and given three days’ cold maceration, then fermented at 23-25°C with another 18-20 days on skins before going through natural malolactic fermentation. Twenty percent of the wine was aged in fifth-use oak barrels (mostly French) for six months before blending and bottling..
