Producer Note
Perez Cruz is a family owned boutique winery located in the Alto Maipo. Their estate
covers 250 hectres of vines planted in one of the most sought after areas for growing
premium Cabernet Sauvignon. This red wine specialist also produces small parcels of
Syrah, Cot (Malbec), Carmenère and Petit Verdot. From the first vintage in 2002,
President Andres Perez Cruz has seen the estate's speciality red wine amass an
impressive array of awards and gold medals. Their eco-friendly winery was built by
award winning architect Jose Cruz Ovalle, to fulfil the technical objective of fine wine
production. Its wooden roof and natural light allow thermal isolation and free air flow
circulation, making it one of the most unique wineries in the world.
Vintage
2015 was a warm vintage for the area, with average temperatures of above 32°C
from January to the end of March. The warm weather brought about good
photosynthesis and phenolic maturity in the grapes, resulting in wines with
concentrated fruit and soft tannins.
Vineyard
The Liguai Estate is located in the Maipo Andes subregion and is nestled against the
mountain foothills at between 440 and 520 metres elevation. Trained on Double
Guyot systems the vines are drip irrigated and are grown in rocky soils of both alluvial
and colluvial origin. The cooling influences of the mountain air, along with the Pacific
Ocean breezes ensure a long ripening season, resulting in concentrated flavours in
the berries combined with a balancing acidity. Harvested by hand, the grapes are
picked when they have reached the perfect maturity.
Winemaking
Each block was fermented individually so it could reveal the unique characteristics of
every corner of the vineyard. The grapes were carefully selected and macerated at
cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks for 24 to 72 hours. During the first two thirds
of fermentation the wine was pumped over and during the final third the cap was
gently punched down, extracting the desired level of tannins, colour and flavours.
The wine was macerated for a further 10 days, before being transferred to 60%
American and 40% French oak barrels, where malolactic fermentation took place,
followed by 12 months ageing.
Tasting Note
Intense notes of ripe red fruits are enhanced by vanilla, black pepper and nuances
of wild herbs. Creamy and concentrated on the palate, with a nice grip.
Serving Suggestion
Roast beef or sausage casserole.
