Haras de Pirque Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Haras de Pirque was recently acquired by the Antinori family, who is now leading in Maipo Valley a very ambitious and exciting new project. Notes of chocolate, earth and spices, Hussonet is a beautiful expression a very unique terroir.

Blackcurrant - Mint - Chocolate

Intense, elegant nose with notes of mint, spices and liquorice, leading into ripe flavours of black fruits: blackberry, plum and cassis. Generously structured on the palate with a seam of earthy minerality. After alcoholic fermentation, the must was pressed and transferred to a mix of new and second-fill French oak barrels for malolactic and fourteen months maturation

Haras de Pirque Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Haras de Pirque was recently acquired by the Antinori family, who is now leading in Maipo Valley a very ambitious and exciting new project. Notes of chocolate, earth and spices, Hussonet is a beautiful expression a very unique terroir.

Blackcurrant - Mint - Chocolate

Named after one of the most successful Chilean stallions of the estate, Hussonet is an elegant and charming Cabernet, yet with a strong territorial identity. The vineyards are situated in the prestigious Maipo Valley, ideal for growing Cabernet Sauvignon of exceptional quality. Gran Reserva ages at least 12 months in French oak barrels, followed by another 12 months in bottle. The wine is long and persistent, with pleasant tannins and delicate notes of chocolate and cedarwood. A true classic of Maipo-Andes.

Producer

The magnificent Haras de Pirque estate occupies a privileged position at the foot of the Andes, in Chiles Maipo Valley region. The lovingly tended vineyards are on largely north-facing slopes, from the middle of which rises a unique horseshoe-shaped gravity-flow winery, inspired by the estates other claim to fame: as an internationally renowned thoroughbred breeding farm. The wines are a collaboration between the Matte family, who own the estate, and Antinori; they thus benefit from a synthesis of input from top Chilean winemakers and Antinoris own Renzo Cotarella.

Vineyard

The grapes come entirely from the estate vineyards surrounding the winery, where vine varieties are matched to each individual plot to maximize the quality of the raw material. They were picked by hand at the end of April.

Winery

The various parcels were fermented individually with regular pump-overs. After alcoholic fermentation, the must was pressed and transferred to a mix of new and second-fill French oak barrels for malolactic and fourteen months maturation. The wine was then bottled without fining or filtration.

Taste

Intense, elegant nose with notes of mint, spices and liquorice, leading into ripe flavours of black fruits: blackberry, plum and cassis. Generously structured on the palate with a seam of earthy minerality.
