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
Widely known as Malbec, Cot is a synonym, originally from south western France. In
the Maipo Alto it produces very fresh and expressive wines. 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
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. Post fermentation
maceration lasted for 10 days, before being transferred 100% French oak barrels,
where malolactic fermentation took place, followed by 12 to 14 months ageing.
Tasting Note
Opulent, with a very perfumed nose of fresh cassis, raspberry, lemongrass and
eucalyptus. The well structured palate shows chalky tannins with good grip with a
balancing freshness. The red cherry flavours are supported by savoury notes of
shiitake mushrooms through to a smooth and elegant finish.
Serving Suggestion
Beef dishes with a wild mushroom sauce or blue cheese.
