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.


Vineyard
Nestled against the mountain foothills at an elevation of between 1,450 and 1,700
feet, is the Liguai estate, the exclusive source of Perez Cruz wine and the home of the
estate winery. The estate is located in the Maipo-Andes subregion of the Maipo
Valley, where the vines are double Guyot trained and drip irrigated. The vines
naturally produce low yields and the grapes are harvested by hand at optimum
maturity levels.


Winemaking
The grapes were hand-picked and carefully selected before being cold-macerated
at 7°C for 48 hours. Fermentation lasted for eight days in stainless steel tanks
between 24 and 26° C. Total skin contact was 10 days with pump-overs that were
gradually reduced in volume as fermentation progressed, with daily tastings to
ensure the desired levels of extraction were achieved. Once alcoholic fermentation
was completed, the wine was macerated for a further six days, then racked and
transferred to 225 litre barrels of one, two and three years old to add layers of
complexity.


Tasting Note
A beautifully concentrated wine with distinctive aromas of blackberries and pepper
with a touch of subtle smoke. Full bodied and well structured but retaining elegance,
with a lingering finish.
