About

91

There is also a 2015 Massal 1945 Cabernet Sauvignon from ungrafted Cabernet Sauvignon plants from an old massale selection on volcanic and granite soils. The grapes are harvested early in search of freshness and fermented in 10,000-liter stainless steel vats with indigenous yeasts. The wine matured in fourth use 300-liter barriques and a 7,000-liter oak foudre for one year. The nose is quite elegant and nuanced, with good ripeness without excess and with integrated oak aromas. The palate is balanced, andmedium-bodied with classical tannins from the variety. An expressive Cabernet from Cachapoal. 2,500 bottles were filled in June 2016.

Product Description:

Color: Intense ruby red. Nose: Fresh red fruit aromas such as plums and cherries and delicate notes of sweet spices. Very elegant. Palate: Concentrated body with balance and length. Good tannic structure and round mid palate. Very persistent.
