The Cabernet Sauvignon vines are 25 years old that yield only five tons per hectare.
After crushing, the juice undertakes a cold maceration at 5 C for one week. After fermentation, the wine is further macerated for 15 days before pressing. 50% of the wine is then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The rest is kept in stainless steel tanks before the final blending. Alcohol by Volume 15.0%
TASTING NOTES: This is Tinajas del Maule’s flagship wine. The crimson wine is concentrated and built to last. Its complex aromas of blackcurrant and black cherries are complemented by generous aromas of vanilla and black pepper. The wine has a firm structure and gritty tannins. A bright acidic backbone pulls it together while it opens beautifully in the glass. Decant this wine and enjoy at 18°C.
PAIRING: This wine will pair well with rich cuts of beef. Braised meat and charcoal grilled asados. The flavorful wine will taste its best with fatty duck magret and beef wellington.
