Mariposa Alegre Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Cabernet Sauvignon (100%)
Colchagua Valley, Chile
Traditional in stainless steel tanks with an average length of 8-12 days, and temperatures about 24-26°C. Aged for 8 months in used French oak barrels
Deep ruby red. Different layers of complex aromas can be perceived. From ripe red currants, blackberries, prunes, cassis and menthol bouquet, complemented with cloves, cigar box, and vanilla coming from the oak influence, though always in balance. Full-bodied with chalky and well integrated tannins, this wine feelsheavy on the palate, giving a grassy mouth coating sensation, volume and structure. A range of flavours from red and black fruits, dried fruits to savoury, spices and an earthy hint makes our cabernet tasty and complex.
It is powerful, complex and elegant at the same time.
Ready to drink now but it will definitely will get better in time.
