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. Vineyard
The grapes are sourced from low yielding vines from the Liguai Estate. Located in the Maipo Valleys Maipo-Andes subregion, the vineyard is nestled against the mountain foothills between 440 and 520 metres elevation. The Double Guyot trained vines are drip irrigated and grown in alluvial soils with low fertility. The harvest takes place manually, once the grapes have reached optimum maturity levels. Winemaking
The grapes were handpicked and then carefully selected before being gently pressed and cold macerated in stainless steel tanks. Pumped over by hand, the juice was fermented and was then macerated with its skins for a period of 30 days. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation and was then matured in new French oak barrels for 16 months. Tasting Note
