Cabernet Sauvignon

Viña Los Vascos
At Los Vascos cultivation is at our heart; we cultivate 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
A rainy winter gave way to a cool spring in which maximum temperatures did not exceed 26°C. The summer kicked off with early rains and unusually low temperatures. It was, in fact, the coolest season in recent years and this, of course, is reflected in the wines. It was necessary to watch the vineyard closely, taste and analyze the grapes more frequently in order to make the right decision for the harvest date. The grapes were handpicked during April. At the beginning, due to the cold season, the sugar levels were not high enough, so we had to wait a little longer. Towards the end of the month, forecasts of heavy rains forced us to rush and harvest before the grapes were damaged. This season we started harvest almost a month later than in 2020, which will be remembered for its high temperatures.

Tasting
This particularly cool year boosted the expression and juiciness of this wine.
Bright ruby red color. Intense notes of red fruits such as strawberries, cherries, fresh figs, and especially ripe raspberries with layers of herbal notes of mint, basil, and spices, such as pepper.
The palate is crisp and juicy, with tannins that reflect the cool temperatures of the season.
