Originally from Bordeaux in France Cabernet Sauvignon is the most widely grown grape variety worldwide, a feat that is largely due to the fact that the vine is able to adapt successfully to almost every type of soil. Chile has the ideal conditions to produce superb Cabernets, which when combined with phylloxera free ungrafted vines, endows Chilean Cabernet with its own unique flavour.
This wine is the Reserva level, produced by renowned winemakers Concha Y Toro, under their Casillero del Diablo label. Produced from grapes grown in selected vineyards in the Central Valley, which are vinified using traditional techniques, but in an ultra-modern winery. Following vinification, 70% of the wine underwent barrel ageing for 8 months in American oak, before back blending to produce this superb, multi award winning wine. When they are first bottled these wines can display firm tannins which tend to soften over time and give way to exceptional, elegant, full-bodied wines characterised by black fruit and cassis flavours. This wine, from the superb 2011 vintage exemplifies this.
A smooth Cabernet Sauvignon full of cassis and black cherry flavours, complemented by hints of coffee and dark chocolate. A great match with red meats, barbecues and hard cheeses.
"Finest value Cabernet on the Planet", Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail.
