Antiguas Reserva - Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, Cousino Macul, Valle del Maipo

Out of stock

The opinion of the wine taster

Antiguas Reserva is one of the most important wines of Cusino Macul. The maturity of the new world meets the elegance of the traditional wines, thanks to his aging in French oak barrels. Wines of this winery never stop to impress me!

 

The terroir

The vineyards are situated in the southern region of the Maipo Valley called “Alto Maipo”, just 30 km south of Santiago, right at the feet of Andes. The fresh air coming from the mountains, descends on the valley at night. It is very beneficial for both vines and soil. Moreover the soil drains water coming from the mountains.

lecepage The grape variety

This grape variety is originally from France, more precisely from Bordeaux. The cabernet sauvignon is very common in Chile and it produces wines with aromas of blackcurrant and often red pepper and tobacco. The eucalyptuses in the Alto Maipo confer to this grape variety a particular and lively freshness.

lemillesime The vintage

During the blooming, average temperatures range between 10°C and 32°C. This allows the slow and continuous growing of the sugar, the intensification of the colour and the excellent retention of the natural acidity of fruits and ripe tannins.

lerecoltant The winemaker

Cousino Macul is a family business founded in 1956 and it is one of the oldest wine-producing families of Chile. Three brothers of the Cousino family run the winery and their objective is to express with their wines, the real flavours of the Maipo Valley.
