Producer Note
Perez Cruz is a family owned boutique winery located in the Alto Maipo. Their estate
covers 250 hectares 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. They also produce an elegant cool climate Sauvignon Blanc from Casablanca. From the first vintage in 2002, 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
The 2019 season was characterised by a lack of rain during the spring, followed by hot
temperatures during the summer. This resulted in low yields compared to previous
years, due to the effects of drought and water stress. The quality was good to very
good in most of the valleys, with the grapes being harvested in a very healthy condition
as the warm, dry weather reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. The wines are rich
in flavour with good balance and delicate aromatics.
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. Fermentation lasted for seven days in stainless steel tanks,
at temperatures of 23 to 27°C. Daily pump-overs were determined by tastings, and
were reduced in volume towards the end of fermentation, extracting the desired level
of tannins, colour and flavours throughout. The wine was macerated for a further six
days, before being transferred to American and French oak barrels, for 12 months’
maturation.
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.
