Viña Los Vascos
In the land of Los Vascos, cultivation is at our heart; cultivating not only vineyards but our dream to transform our vast land into a fruitful eco-system producing the most elegant Chilean wines. We are free spirited but remember our heritage. Our holistic approach encompasses and protects all - from our short-legged sheep clearing weeds without devouring precious grapes to our artisans honing hand-made knives to carefully tend the vines. We embody the Chilean paradox, meticulous in our work, easy going and warm in our personality. We are independent yet proud to cultivate our community because we are stronger and happier together.

The vintage
The 2018 season came up with ideal weather conditions. It started with a normal amount of rain, creating a perfect setting for flowering and fruit set. Minimum temperatures never reached extreme levels, so we did not suffer from frosts. The main feature of our 2018 summer was a gentle climate, with heat remaining under average, which translated into a slow maturation. This crucial factor, added to the absence of rain towards the end of the season, was essential for harvesting the fruit at its peak, delivering balanced wines.
Varietals
Cabernet sauvignon : 75%

Tasting notes
This wine has a characteristic ruby red with garnet hues. On the nose aromas of red fruits stand out, such as raspberry and cherries, accompanied by soft notes of cocoa and white pepper. The mouth exhibits a pleasant sweetness, an excellent balance between the rich acidity of the Cabernet and the quality of the tannins of the Syrah that help to have a long and elegant finish.
