Terranoble Lahuen Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2018 - Maipo Valley
A dark and brooding red wine from the Maipo Alto and Los linguas areas of the Colchagua Valley. It is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Carmenere, Cabernet Franc and a touch of Malbec. The wine is intense yet elegant with plenty of ripe red and black fruits in the bouquet and also on the palate where it is well flavoured and concentrated. The tannins are fine and well rounded by the passage in oak. All in all this is a very fine wine that is worthy of all cellars.

This is the top of the range for Terranoble and makes for some very educated drinking. After temperature controlled fermentation the wines were transferred to both large oak foudres and small oak barriques for both the Malolactic Fermentation and the ageing thereafter which lasted for around 18 months depending on the grape variety. After this the final blend was made and post bottling, it was aged for a further 12 months in bottle.
