This variety is born of the Cauquenes Valley, in the Maule region. Here, the soils rich in red clay and a dry Mediterranean climate with a coastal influence create a terroir with extraordinary conditions for the production of this wine.
Denomination of Origin
The clay-loam soils over a granitic base in our vineyards contribute structure and character to this wine, while the zone’s coastal breezes and constant sunshine produce the rich acidity and fresh fruit that enables us to obtain a vibrant and enchantingly elegant Cabernet Sauvignon
Aged in French and American oak barrels from 8 to 10 months
Soils rich in red clay and granite give rise to Reserva Especial in Cauquenes, 350 kilometres south of Santiago de Chile. Clay has been a key element in many creations throughout human history, and today it has an important role in making this wine.
