About the Wine
Producer: Misiones de Rengo
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon.
Ageing: 12 months in French and American barrels, 15% of which are new and 85% used. Twenty percent of the wine is kept in stainless steel tanks in order to maintain a primary fruit component in the wine..
Appearance: Ruby red colour with violet tints.
Nose: This wine has a very present profile of ripe black fruits. Medium intensity nose, fruity with clear notes of black fruit such as black plum and black cherry, alongside berries such as blackberry and blueberry. Subtle notes of red fruit are also found, including fresh strawberry and raspberry. The aromas of black and red fruit are harmoniously blended with spicy tangs (typical of the Maipo Valley), for example black pepper and subtle notes of bay leaves. Ageing in barrels brings pleasant sweet notes such as caramel, toffee and vanilla.
Palate: Due to the type of soil in the region where this vineyard is located and, in turn, due to the temperature profile of the season, the palate is very well structured (the sharp-edged stones in the soil help the formation of the tannins that structure the wine). The medium body is due to to the sandy-loam texture.
