Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Bright, deep red in color. Very expressive on the nose with aromas of red fruits, blackcurrants, and blueberries, as well as mineral notes such as pencil lead. Well-structured and balanced on the palate with excellent density, fresh acidity, and silky tannins, with subtle notes of vanilla, graphite and loam on the lingering finish.

General description

Variety / Style

  • Cabernet Sauvignon

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

  • Las Terrazas Block, Pirque Vineyard, D.O. Pirque, Maipo Valley.

Vineyard

The Pirque Viejo Vineyard is one of the winery’s oldest vineyards. It is located 650 m above sea level and runs along the Maipo River, near the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The vertically positioned, cordon-pruned vines come from pre-phylloxera vinestock.

Soil

Alluvial, rocky, poor in nutrients, and highly permeable due to the gravel in the sub-soil.

Climate

Semi-arid Mediterranean. Strongly influenced by the Andes Mountains and the proximity to the Maipo River. The high daily temperature oscillation helps develop the fruit concentration and intensifies the aromas.

AGING

17 months in French oak barrels.

Expert Reviews

An unctuous red, dripping with molten chocolate notes that wrap around concentrated dark and red fruit flavors. Very creamy, with a plush finish that offers a rich array of spice and mocha details".

The 2011 Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon is a tad better than the 2010. The wine aged for 14-16 months in barrels and has a perfumed nose mixing the classical notes of tobacco and blackberries with fresher aromas of raspberries leading to a soft, feminine profile, very attractive and lovely, with tannins that show great work in the winery. This is a great Cabernet Sauvignon.
