Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva, Maipo Andes, Viña Perez Cruz, 2019

£75.18/ 6 x Bottles (£12.53 each)

Smooth and juicy with fresh vibrant notes of blackcurrants, wild herbs and mint. Perez Cruz is a family-owned boutique winery located in the Alto Maipo. Their estate covers 250 hectares of vines planted in one of the most sought after areas for growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2019 season was characterised by a lack of rain during the spring, followed by hot temperatures during the summer. This resulted in low yields compared to previous years, due to the effects of drought and water stress. The quality was good to very good in most of the valleys, with the grapes being harvested in a very healthy condition as the warm, dry weather reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. The wines are rich in flavour with good balance and delicate aromatics.
