Tasting Notes: Bright with bags of fruit, this doesn't disappoint from nose through to palate. Full of blackcurrant and cedar like aromas and flavours so typical of its variety, this wine has a round, weighty palate and an appealing sweetness of fruit on the finish.

Producer Details: This is one of Tierra Alta's most successful everyday wines yet it is a defiantly serious wine for the money. The strength of relationships with their growers in Chile allows them to keep prices low and quality high. The Sauvignon grapes are from high mountain vineyards, in the foothills of the Andes. This Cabernet is from the Central Valley, full of dark cassis fruit with ripe soft tannins.

In The Vineyard: Sourced from selected areas of the Central Valley. Long standing working relationships with growers in the region enables the producer to source premium fruit, with the ultimate aim of making excellent quality Chilean wines with true style and character.

In The Winery: Relatively cool short fermentation to preserve fruit aroma with maceration on the skins for only a few days to extract nice colour but minimal tannins. Early bottling to keep the wine's youthful style.
