Antucura

Antucura Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

90 pts James Suckling - Full body, silky tannins and a clean finish

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

This wine has deep, bright ruby tones. On the nose are typical Cabernet notes like red fruits, pepper, spices and licorice. The palate tasted an entry filled with soft tannins but very present and with a final round.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts James Suckling
Plenty of dark fruit such as raspberry and dried strawberry. Full body, silky tannins and a clean finish. Firm tannins. Drink in 2018.

88 pts Tanzer/Vinous
Good bright, dark red. Blackberry, blueberry, cassis and licorice on the nose; distinctly dark fruit in character. Delivers lovely energy and intensity for the price range, with a sexy sweetness nicely leavened by bright acidity. At once sweeter and higher in acidity than the Vista Flores Malbec. Finishes firm and persistent.



Winemaker Notes

Harvest: Manual, in18 Kg plastic bins. Production: Double selection of the grapes, fermentation at 22-24C in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature for 10-12 days. Extended maceration for approximately 10 days while in contact with the skins; after the fermentation and depending on the taste. Aging: Three months in French oak barrels. Then in bottle for six months in controlled settings until obtains a bouquet typical of the terrain in Vista Flores.
