Caliterra Tributo Cabernet Sauvignon


The grapes used for this wine are grown in the Colchagua Valley in Chile. The varieties used in this wine are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Vinification takes place in stainless steel barrels and 3% of the most ferments in barrels. Ageing happens for 12 months in barrels, of which 13% new French oak.

Of ruby-red colour, the present version of this wine is delicate and elegant. Its aromas of medium intensity appear swiftly on the nose, reminding of blackberries, red currants and cassis. They give way to spicy notes of cinnamon, black pepper and tobacco leaves. As the wine opens in the glass, slight hints of caramel, complemented by sour cherries, show up. Well balanced and with great volume, the wine shows soft tannins and a crisp acidity that form a great structure on the palate and allow predicting a long ageing potential.

Typical Chilean food: roasted beef with mashed red bell peppers International food: magret de canard fried on its own fat with oven-roasted potatoes.
