Las Huertas, Estate Reserve, Rouge

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
The lack of rainfall in winter made the start of the season unusually dry, which forced us to irrigate earlier and make more meticulous monitoring of the vineyard.
The biggest challenge of the 2019 season, were the excessively high temperatures towards the end of January and the beginning of February (reaching 40.6°C). Fortunately, the cold nights, allowed us to obtain grapes of great quality, with an ideal ripening and balance. The harvest for this wine began in early April and ended at the end of the same month.
By the volume that is produced, the plots destined for this wine are harvested manually and mechanically, seeking to harvest in the first way the best quarters available and those who will surely enter the blend.
Cabernet sauvignon : 88%
Syrah : 10%
Carménère : 2%

Ruby colored with garnet trim.
The nose is intense, with red fruits such as cherries and plums, accompanied by cassis. Along with these fruits appear spicy notes of clove and cinnamon complemented by a background of well-integrated wood and graphite notes. The palate is intense, with a pleasant volume and acidity. It has characterful but elegant tannins that give it presence and vitality.
A structured and balanced wine, a good representative of a Los Vascos Cabernet Sauvignon.
