Casas del Bosque Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Deep red with a purple hue. Aromas reminiscent of black cherries, raspberries, mint and tobacco are complemented with notes of vanilla and mocha from the French oak barrels the wine was aged in. This Cabernet Sauvignon is lively and fresh, with supple tannins and excellent length.

Upon arrival at the winery all grapes were destemmed and crushed to stainless steel tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Fermentation occurred quickly and temperatures were kept low, at around 25ºC. The wine was left to macerate for an additional 8 days, for added structure and longevity. Half the resulting wine underwent malolactic fermentation in barrels, where it was left to age for an average time of 6 months, the other half was kept in tanks. The wine was finally blended, filtered and bottled. The first bottling shall occur on 23/24 May 2019. A total of 15.600 cases shall be produced.
