Sensual Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Overview

Very attractive ruby-red hue. Spicy aromas of black pepper and red pepper, with seductive hints of ripe berries. It is an elegant Cabernet Sauvignon. Smooth, full-bodied wine, with some fresh mineral notes, and tastes that mimic the aromas. Balanced acidity. The above leads to a soft and complex finish with pleasing fruit and spices on the palate and great volume on the finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The vineyards for these wines are located in San Rafael, Mendoza at 750 meters above sea level, in sandy-calcareous soils of alluvial origins. Hand-picked and twice sorted by hand, the grapes for Sensual Cabernet Sauvignon are crushed, fermented at controlled temperatures of 82.4° F in stainless steel tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Very gentle, periodic pumping over is conducted, with 7-10 days’ total maceration and natural stabilization. Twenty five percent of the wine spends three months in contact with medium-toasted French oak staves. It spends a further 3 months in bottle before shipping.

Serving Hints
The perfect accompaniment to a wide range of foods, especially the steaks and beef that are typical of Argentine cuisine.
