THE WINEMAKER: MARCIO RAMIREZ
"At the moment of creating a wine, I always expect it to express all its special features, all the essence of its grapes together with the character of the soil where it belongs. A unique combination that can be appreciated in its color, bouquet and flavors".
The Pirque Viejo Vineyard is one of the winery’s oldest vineyards. It is located 650 m above sea level and runs along the Maipo River, near the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The vertically positioned, cordon-pruned vines come from pre-phylloxera vinestock
Semi-arid Mediterranean. Strongly influenced by the Andes Mountains and the proximity to the Maipo River. The high daily temperature oscillation helps develop the fruit concentration and intensifies the aromas.
17 months in French oak barrels.
Bright, deep red in color. Very expressive on the nose with aromas of red fruits, blackcurrants, and blueberries, as well as mineral notes such as pencil lead. Well-structured and balanced on the palate with excellent density, fresh acidity, and silky tannins, with subtle notes of vanilla, graphite and loam on the lingering finish.
This Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon wine goes well with beef, lamb, and other red meats or game such as venison or boar prepared with a bit of acidity (tomato or wine) or aromatic herbs such as rosemary, thyme, bay leaf. Also perfect with full-flavored cheeses.

"Dark berry, rubber and brambly notes of wild brush open this well-built, saturated Cabernet. Spicy blackberry and herbal flavors are pure Maipo-Pirque, while this shows integrated oak, chocolate and a mix of ripeness of fruit and freshness on the finish. Drink through 2028."
