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
Much-needed winter rainfall replenished the soil water reserves and sustained the
vines through the dry growing season that followed. Dry conditions reduced disease
pressure and the grapes ripened slowly, encouraging good flavour accumulation in
the fruit. 2018 was a good vintage for both quality and quantity and the wines show
excellent varietal character.


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.
