Harvest The season started with a cold and rainy winter in 2017, leaving enough water reserves in the groundand.. Spring 2017 did not register important frosts and moved forward with good conditions, allowing an excellent bud break. From December 2017 until mid-February 2018, maximum temperatures were moderate, extending berry set, verasion and ripening. March was fresh, allowing a slow sugar accumulation without losing acidity, key to obtain wines with great balance. Fall didn’t brought rains letting the latest varieties to be harvested during optimal dates.
Vinification As a general winemaking philosophy, in our Cuvée Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon we look for elegance, balance and ageing potential. To express the terroir of Apalta is our mission; so, our winemaking philosophy remains very natural a process with minimal intervention. Our key points are 100% hand harvest in small cases of 14 kilos, strict fruit selection by 100% optical state of the art grape selection, Vistalys. Gentle extraction methods and a judicious use of oak to preserve the fruit but integrate the complexity that a wine of this quality deserves.
Our Cuvee Alexandre Cabernet Sauvignon comes from an old block of Cabernet planted in 1920 with high density.
All fermentations were made with wild yeast, 100% was fermented in stainless steel tanks, between 24ºC and 25ºC. Then, 100% of the wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. There is no stabilization, no clarification and a very light filtration prior to bottling.
