Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2016 Chilean REd Wine 750 mL

$14.99

Viña Pérez Cruz is a family-owned, single-estate producer of expressive red wines from the stony soils of the Maipo Valley. The winery and the Liguai vineyard are located in the “Maipo Andes” sub-region. This area is 30 miles southeast of Santiago, nestled against the Andes mountain foothills between 1,450 and 1,700 foot elevations. The family purchased the property in 1963 and first planted vines there in 1994. The rocky soils and temperate microclimate of the region create exceptional growing conditions. Additionally, the cooling influences of the Andes mountain air and the Pacic Ocean breezes allow for slow ripening conditions that lead to a fresh, vibrant fruit expression, natural acidity, and soft tannins. Viña Pérez Cruz has 250 hectares of vineyards, approximately 70% of which are planted to Cabernet Sauvignon, while the rest is divided amongst Carménère, Syrah, Cot (Malbec), Merlot, and Petit Verdot. In 2009 and 2010, in an ongoing effort to increase complexity in the wines, the family planted Mourvèdre, Grenache, and Cabernet Franc. Viña Pérez Cruz is Certified Sustainable by Wines of Chile and Vinnova.” The Importer
