Origin Los Lingues, Colchagua Valley, Chile.
Grape Variety 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot

Tasting Notes Deep ruby red color, with a stunning array of blackcurrant, blackberry, and dried herbs that are layered with hints of black tea and black pepper. This Cabernet is a full expression of our vineyard, showing a real grip of acidity and mineral notes from our Los Lingues Estate.  Tannins are solid and velvety, and come together with a silky and balanced finish.
Winemaker’s Notes The grapes were picked in selected lots, coming from our Los Lingues Estate.  The vineyards are biodynamically managed, with stringent water management to preserve the terroir expression.  At optimum yield of 1,5 kg per plant, the grapes are handpicked and brought to the cellar for sorting.  The Koyle team selects only perfect clusters for this wine.  In the tank, cold maceration (for aroma and flavor extraction) takes place over 5 days, followed by fermentation over two weeks at 24 to 26ºC.  Finally, warm maceration (to extract just the most rounded and silky tannin) takes place.  After this, the wine is aged in French oak barrels for twelve months.  The final blending allows for a perfect balance between the expression and elegance of the Cabernet Sauvignon and the complexity from the Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
