Our Handpicked Reserva wines are born out of a strong desire to offer the very best expressions of terroir from our El Crucero vineyard, located at an altitude of 360 metres above sea level. These carefully handpicked grapes deliver superb varietal characteristics and exceptionally well-balanced fruit concentration. The manual harvest behind our handpicked Reserva Wines, a stage prior to a second triage, highlights our commitment to delivering uniquely handcrafted wines from Colchagua Valley.
Alcoholic fermentation is kept between 27-29°C to obtain a better colour and structure, followed by malolactic fermentation. 25% of the Handpicked Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 3 months in French oak barrels. After blending, the wine is gently clarified.
Of an intense ruby red colour, on the nose the aromas of blackcurrant, dark chocolate, and pepper stand out, as well as a subtle eucalyptus note. The palate is well-rounded, generous in black fruits, dark chocolate and spice, which is complemented with a balanced and long-lasting finish. A round taste of soft tannins with good acidity and an excellent balance.
