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 coolclimate 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
Frost, drought, summer heatwaves and the Covid pandemic all provided challenges
for Chile's winemakers in 2020. The warm, dry winter was followed by frost in early
October which significantly reduced yields. Fortunately, the temperatures warmed up
and the season was hot and dry, resulting in a short and early harvest, yielding
concentrated grapes full of flavour.
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 cold-macerated at a temperature of 7°C for 48 hours and then
fermented for seven days in stainless steel tanks between 20 and 24°C. Skin contact
vinification lasted for 15 days, with daily pump overs extracting the desired level of
tannins, colour and flavour. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was
macerated for six days, then racked and settled for 48 hours before being transferred
to 225 litre seasoned French oak barrels for 14 months' ageing.
Tasting Note
Opulent, with a very perfumed nose of fresh cassis, raspberry, lemongrass and
eucalyptus. The well-structured and creamy palate has an attractive, delicate freshness
and red cherry flavours flowing through to a smooth, elegant finish.
