Colchagua Valley, Chile
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot
The 2017 vintage has a beautiful, deep, ruby-red colour. On the nose the notes are of ripe red fruit, such as cherry, strawberry, and plum. With 18 months in French oak barrels, the wine shows good complexity, with notes of tobacco, sweet spice, and very well balanced toast in the background. On the palate the aroma profile reappears, with the wine showing balance and an enveloping character, medium body and a long finish, full of creamy sensations and persistent fruit character.
Highly recommended with roast turkey, beef fillet, sherried kidneys, duck confit.
