Tasting Note: This elegant and robust 60% Shiraz- 40%
Cabernet Sauvignon blend comes from dry hills in Maule valley, Chile’s most
traditional origin. A Shiraz whose appearance is highly intense. Vigorous
and upfront, it stands out for its dark red concentrated colour. In nose
this wine is rich in notes of red fruit which combine with sweet spicy tones
of chocolate, mocha and a delicately elegant violet-like touch. Some nice
final notes of toasted oak are perceived, due to its aging time in barrels.
In mouth, this Shiraz- Cabernet Sauvignon blend presents a pleasant texture.
Structured and persistent.

tanks for 10 months
