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
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 carefully selected and macerated at a temperature of 7°C in
stainless steel tanks for 24 to 72 hours. During fermentation, the frequency of
pumping over was reduced, as Petit Verdot imparts good levels of colour, structure
and flavour without too much extraction. During the final third of fermentation, gentle
pump-overs took place to submerge the cap. Post fermentation maceration lasted
for 10 days, before being transferred 100% French oak barrels, where malolactic
conversion took place, followed by 12 to 14 months ageing.


Tasting Note
A complex and elegant Petit Verdot with aromas of ripe red fruits enhanced by
herbal, tobacco, black pepper and spicy notes. The palate is well structured and
fresh, with soft tannins and a distinctive mineral note that leads to a long finish.
