Description

COUSINO MACUL ANTIGUAS RESERVA CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015

Antiguas Reservas is Cousiño Macul´s emblematic wine, with over 80 years in its portfolio. Since debuting  in 1927, Antiguas Reservas has always been a limited selection of the very best Cabernet Sauvignon from the Cousiño-Macul estate. Over the years, Cousiño-Macul maintained its classic style. By combining New World ripeness with Old World elegance, finesse and a framework to age long and well.

Intense bright ruby red color. The aromas are spiced, giving a first impression of plums, raspberry, cherry and a floral note with fresh pepper. Afterwards, it gives space for toffee accompanied by vanilla and a smoked scent. In mouth, it has a medium to high acidity, round tannins and very frutal feeling. It´s an elegant wine with an intense body, fresh and long mouthfeel.

HARVESTING

Season 2014-2015 had the highest temperatures and least amount of frosts in the last 3 years. It’s main characteristics was the absence of rainfalls during the flowering and harvest period, giving us very healthy grapes to work with.  High temperatures got our grapes faster to the optimal ripening, giving to our wines a discreet acidity, structured tannins and higher aromatic intensity.

After a careful manual harvest and careful selection in the cellar, elaboration of the wine began with seven days of cold maceration at 10 º C (50°F). Then the juice was fermented during 9 to 10 days at an average temperature of 26 º C (78.8 º F), using different yeast strains. A 20 days post fermentative maceration allowed enhancing the flavors and bouquet, as well as smoothing the tannins. The wine matured in French oak barrels during twelve months while the malolactic fermentation went through. After this final stage, it was gently filtered and bottled.
