Cabernet Sauvignon 'Founder's Selection', Valle de Maipo, Vi̱a EcheverrÌ_a

Opulent blackcurrant fruit with notes of mint and herbs and juicy, fleshy flavours.
This iconic Cabernet Sauvignon was created as a dedication to Roberto Echeverria Snr, the founder and original winemaker at Vi̱a Echeverria. A manual harvest took place when the grapes had reached optimal phenolic ripeness, they were then carried immediately to the winery in 18kg boxes and were carefully selected. The grapes were fermented in 12,000 litre stainless steel vats for 10 days at controlled temperatures of between 25 to 28å¡C with selected yeasts. An extended skin maceration took place for an additional 10 to 15 days. The wine then went through 100% malolactic fermentation, before being aged in 225 litre new French oak barrels for 18 months. The wine was blended and returned to barrels for six additional months.

Three words to describe this wine:

blackcurrant – mint – opulent
