Cauquenina 2013
WINE OVERVIEW

A wild field blend that shows the rustic brilliance of Chile’s Maule Valley.

Tasting Notes

Complex nose opens up to fruits, predominantly cherry and raspberry. Mineral notes on the palate are met with a touch of gunpowder, earth, and granite. Refreshing acidity and smooth mouthfeel- a cozy, full, and complex wine.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with barbecue, lamb, steak, and firm cheeses.

Tech Details

Cauquenina means "girl from Cauquenes." This blend comes from dry-farmed old vines planted on ancient red granite slopes. Carignan, Pais, Carmenere, Malbec and Syrah are all sourced from around the town of Cauquenes, deep in a forgotten but historically important viticultural region. The wine is aged in concrete tanks.
