In 1996 we decided to tackle the challenge of making our first ultra premium wine; the chosen variety was Pinot Noir and for its inaugural production we set apart 20 barrels of the best fruit the `96 vintage had provided.
This exquisite range’s name was coined after those 20 initial barrels. Pinot Noir was followed by Cabernet Sauvignon in 1997, Merlot in 1998, Chardonnay – Cono Sur’s first ultra-premium white wine – in 2002, Sauvignon Blanc in 2005, and the latest member of the family, a Syrah from the 2008 harvest.
Grape Variety:Cabernet Sauvignon
Gradazione alcolica :14.5%
Most definitely a Cabernet Sauvignon with ample character and personality. This wine has a beautiful, concentrated ruby red coloring and intense aromas of plum, cassis and blueberries, which combine gracefully with softer earthy traces and end with hints of mocha and smoke. A full, complex and intense palate with persistence and an elegant finish.
