There was a very dry period during the winter months (463 mm of rain compared to 726 mm the previous year), but carefully planned, controlled irrigation ensured a normal growth cycle.
Low temperatures in the spring during flowering resulted in some flower abortion, and thus slightly less generous bunches of grapes. Production was reduced by 15% compared to the annual average (8.5 tons/ha vs. 10 tons/ha) but this resulted in greater concentration and remarkably well-balanced grapes.
Bright ruby red colour. Remarkably expressive, fruity nose: aromas of blueberries, cherries, blackcurrants and raspberries blending perfectly with notes of pink pepper, paprika, curry and saffron.
Velvety, full-bodied and seductive in the mouth with mild acidity and gentle tannins giving very pleasant mouthfeel.You'll have heard of Ch?teau Lafite - Bordeaux's most famous property (Parker). But few know of its sister estate in Chile. Fewer still have tried their remarkable wines. The grapes for this 'Cuv?e Especial' were selected from vineyards in Chile's Colchagua Valley. In the cellar, winemaking was overseen by Eric Kohler, formerly of Ch?teaux Lafite and Duhart Milon. There's little wonder it tastes so very fine. It delivers all the purity and concentration for which Chile Cabernet is so famous ( the most exciting red for the money in the world wrote the Guardian), plus elegance, finesse and structure, normally the preserve of Bordeaux's elite clarets.A superb Cabernet that will benefit from decanting prior to serving with roast red meats.
