CANTO DEL AGUA RED BLEND RESERVA DE FAMILIA
The grapes come from Las Pircas Winery estate vineyards in the Maipo Valley, 50 km South West of Santiago. In the Maipo Valley the soils are rocky alluvial with low annual precipitations during the year. The vineyards receive different exposure to sunlight. The yields are carefully controlled to produce concentrated and elegant wines.
The Maipo region of Chile has a Mediterranean style climate. Winter rains are mild and summers are dry with marked temperature variations between day and night, thereby allowing the grapes to obtain superb tannin development as well as excellent aromas and color concentration.
The Cabernet sauvignon grapes were harvested a few days before May. In order to extract color and aromas the must underwent skin contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation during five days. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging between 26° to 28°C during a ten days’ period. The wine is then left to macerate for twenty additional days in order to extract tannin and then placed in oak barrels.
