Description

Famed for being the most highly awarded cool climate coastal winery in Chile, and with Viviana Navarette at the helm (voted Chile's top winemaker), these are wines that are completely distinct from what we have come to expect from the country. The unique microclimate comes from both the proximity to the coast but also, the cooling nature of the Humboldt current. Where the central valley is hot and dry, Leyda is cool and wet and it is this specific climate that brings the wines the unique freshness and balance of acidity that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Becuase of the unique expression and incredible quality, the winery soon had its own DO founded as D.O. Leyda Valley in 2001. The wines are born from two unique sites, El Granito, just 4Km from the sea and El Maiten at 12Km from the sea, bith with ancient granitic soild which lend a certain minerality to all the wines in the range

Wine tasting notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon, from a cool Chilean valley, tastes of plums and cherries, with a frond or two of tobacco and a perfume of mocha.

Vinification notes

Grapes are gently crushed and the juice was chilled to 10 degrees C where it remained for 3 days under anaerobic conditions before selected yeast inoculation. Fermentation occurred at 28-29 degrees with a pumping over regime of 3-4 times per day. The wine was left on its lees and skins for an additional 5 days in order to get more structure. After malolactic fermentation the wine was a racked into French oak barrels and aged there for 10 months.
