Product Description

Made by Vina San Esteban this is a fruit driven example of Cabernet-Sauvignon filled with the taste of blackcurrants and has hints of subtle vanilla from a short time in oak. It is well balanced on the palate and the fruit is complemented by fine grained tannins with a long and full fruity finish.

From the Aconcagua Valley in Chile located 60 miles (100km) north of the capital, Santiago. It was long thought that this hot, dry valley was not suitable for growing wine grapes – the Chilean wine pioneer Don Maximiano Errazuriz was ridiculed when he planted his first vines here – but the quality of the region's modern-day Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Merlot has robustly reversed this opinion. The altitude varies from 50m in the West to 1000m in the East. In the morning as the land heats up the valley is cooled by the air from the Humboldt Current which flows along the coast of Chile. In the evening the flow is reversed as the ocean is then warmer than the land and this movement of air lowers the daytime temperatures which otherwise would scorch the grapes during the day and prolongs the warmth of the day into the evening.
