About

Product Description:

From the Importers' Website: Maipe was the Lord of the Winds for the ancient Andean Indians. He is still called upon to clear the skies after heavy rain, or to temper the summer heat. Maipe Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted from hand selected parcels of the finest grapes grown at Chakana Estate. The wine is smooth & complex with intense, savory fruit flavors, great length & elegance. The grapes are carefully chosen & fermented in small lots to preserve the vineyard identity. Alcoholic fermentation for 10 days with indigenous & selected yeasts, at temperatures of 26 & 30°C, combining, remontage, pigage & delestage in order to obtain the best quality of tannins & structure. The resulting wine is barrel aged for 12 months to fully reveal the character of the Andean terroir.
