  • A rich and complex blend, with intense aromas of dark plum and blackcurrant layered with eucalyptus and menthol. A concentrated and soft palate with black pepper and bitter chocolate flavours complemented by round and supple tannins through to a long, elegant finish. Opulent blackcurrant fruit with notes of mint and herbs and juicy, fleshy flavours.

This iconic Cabernet Sauvignon was created as a dedication to Roberto Echeverria Snr, the founder and original winemaker at Viña Echeverría. A manual harvest took place when the grapes had reached optimal phenolic ripeness, they were then carried immediately to the winery in 18kg boxes and were carefully selected. The grapes were fermented in 12,000 litre stainless steel vats for 10 days at controlled temperatures of between 25 to 28°C with selected yeasts. An extended skin maceration took place for an additional 10 to 15 days. The wine then went through 100% malolactic conversion, before being aged in 225-litre new French oak barrels for 18 months. The wine was blended and returned to barrels for six additional months.

Opulent with intense aromas of dark plum and blackcurrant layered with eucalyptus and menthol. This is a concentrated wine with black pepper and bitter chocolate flavours complemented by round and supple tannins, through to a long, elegant finish.

Winery

The vineyard is located in Maipo Alto in the Central Valley. Alto Maipo reaches into the foothills of the Andean Mountains; the vineyard is situated at elevations of between 400 to 800 metres above sea level. The afternoon sun warms the vineyard and the cool mountain breezes that slide down the hillside at night create a broad oscillation between day and night temperatures. This diurnal temperature difference creates perfect conditions for bold yet elegant red wines, especially the regional star Cabernet Sauvignon. Careful pruning is carried out to allow the correct balance between the canopy and the fruit, while irrigation is carefully managed to avoid dehydration. The vines are grown in medium fertility soils of mostly red and black clay.
