Santa Carolina Reserva Sauvignon Blanc
This Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from vineyards in the Leyda Valley. Cool sea breezes from the Pacific Ocean blow through this newly discovered wine region to counter-balance its otherwise dry climate. Its rolling hillsides are as close as 3 miles from the salty waters, and it is separated by the Coastal Range in the west which leaves it isolated and makes it a unique place for viticulture. The cool conditions and long ripening periods make it an ideal place for Sauvignon Blanc, yielding wines with crisp and lean acidity.
Cousiño-Macul Cabernet Sauvignon
Since the debut in 1927, Antiguas Reservas has always been a limited selection of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon from the Cousiño-Macul estate vineyards. Over the years, Cousiño-Macul has maintained its classic style by combining New World ripeness with Old World elegance, finesse and a framework to age long and well. After a careful manual harvest and careful selection in the cellar, elaboration of the wine began with seven days of cold maceration at 10 º C (50°F). Then the juice was fermented during 9 to 10 days at an average temperature of 26 º C (78.8 º F), using different yeast strains. A 20 days post fermentative maceration allowed enhancing the flavors and bouquet, as well as smoothing the tannins. The wine matured in French oak barrels during twelve months while the malolactic fermentation went through.
