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
2107 was generally a warm year, with a dry summer and high daily temperatures
providing excellent conditions for the ripening and maturation of the grapes. Between
December and the end of February, the average daily temperatures were above 32°C,
enabling the grapes to reach excellent phenolic maturity. The harvest produced
average yields of high quality fruit, delivering good varietal typicity and flavour
concentration, balanced by an attractive acidity.
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
