Viña Aquitania

Valle del Maipo Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

David T
9.0

This is a blend of 85% Cabernet & 15% Syrah and grown at an elevation of 2100 feet with an average vine age of 25 years. 50-50% fermentation in oak and stainless steel. At a retail price point of $20, it’s quite good. The tannins are soft and round. It shows a lot of brighter red fruits of dark cherries, strawberries and some blackberries, touch of pepper, crushed rocks and dry top soil, dark red fresh florals, good acidity and nice finish. Producer history and notes...In the early 1990’s, Bruno Prats (Chateau Cos The) and Paul Pontallier (Chateau Margaux) discovered the high caliber of Cabernet Sauvignon being made from Chile’s Alto Maipo region. They partnered Felipe de Solminihac, a renowned Chilean agronomist, oenologist and winemaker in the region. They purchased 45 acres in the 'Quebrada de Macul', considered the heart of the Maipo Valley vineyards and Viña Aquitania was born. In January 2003, Ghislain de Montgolfier (CEO of Bollinger Champagne), became the fourth partner. Good list of French pedigree involved in Aquitania. — 3 years ago
