Miguel Torres Chile's Cordillera Cabernet Sauvignon is a varietal Cabernet Sauvignon whose grapes grow in the Maipo Valley. In the glass, the Cordillera Cabernet Sauvignon convinces with a visibly high extract content and its dense, deep dark ruby red. Aromas of juicy, dark berry fruits such as blackcurrants and blackberries are especially present in the nose, accompanied by subtle leather and spice notes.
On the palate, this Chilean red wine from Miguel Torres Chile is very rich and well balanced. The tannin of the Cordillera Cabernet Sauvignon is round and mature, the reverberation reveals the spice promised in the nose - especially freshly roasted toast.
Vinification of the Torres Cordillera Cabernet Sauvignon
In April, the grapes for this red wine are harvested in the Maipo Valley. Arriving in the winery, the harvested material is strictly selected, completely destemmed, gently pressed and finally mashed. In the stainless steel tank, the mash is fermented at a controlled temperature of 28°C. After that, this wine remains on the mash. Subsequently, the Cordillera Cabernet Sauvignon is aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, using 30% new barrels and 70% in second batch.
