2015 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Viña Terrapura
Intense aromas of red fruits, with pepper and cassis hint. On the palate it has good structure, round and lasting tannins with toasted aromas, elegant and subtle eucalyptus notes. The grapes of this Single Vineyard wine come from 15 year old vines located in Colchagua Valley, with a production no larger than 9.000 kgs/ha. The grapes were hand-picked in the middle of April. Once crushed, the grapes had cold maceration in tanks for 5 days at 8°C. Fermentation took place at a controlled temperature (28°C) in stainless steel tanks for 10 days, where daily gentle pumping over with air was applied. After the alcoholic fermentation, a maceration (post fermentation) was done for 5 days. Half of the wine volume was aged in French oak for 6 months. L&S (Jan 2018)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
TERRAPURA was formed by a couple of very talented Chilean wine lovers, Alfonso Undurraga and José Miguel Ovalle, whom after years of friendship joined their viticultural dreams together in creating this winery in 2005. Both of them carry in their blood the love for wine-making and a passion and a real understanfing of the land. Alfonso Undurraga learnt the ropes at the well-known Undurraga Winery, which was family owned; meanwhile, José Miguel Ovalle, as a winemaker and viticulturist, has a busy CV full of wine-making jobs in Chile and abroad. Their vast experience in the wine industry has made them very knowledgeable of the very best valleys and finest quality grapes in Chile. They also know how to establish close ties with their clients all over the world. The aim is simple - to craft authentic, real wines from this beautiful countryside that really deliver proper Chilean character and great value drinking across the range.
Chile remains where quality and value really come together. Here are some fine examples of Chilean style and value from Alfonso Undurraga and José Miguel Ovalle at Terrapura.
