Haras de Pirque Albis Gran Reserva 2015
Deep red colour. Chocolate, mint herbs and graphite notes entwine with rich dark jammy fruit on the nose. Dense dark fruit flavours of ripe plum, blueberries, blackberries layered with liquorice, toasted oak spice, coffee, mint and dark chocolate. Complex and full-bodied, balanced by firm tannins and a clean spicy finish.
This wine evolves beautifully in the bottle and can be cellared for 15–25 years.
Fun Fact: Thanks to its historical use as a racing stable, the winery building is shaped like a horse shoe!
Comprises a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Carménère. The vines for this wine were planted in 1992 and the parcels are continuously selected for the special flavours and ripeness of the fruit. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes undergo cold maceration for 5 days and a traditional vinification takes place with indigenous yeast to enhance the natural concentration and ripeness of the grapes. Alcoholic fermentation and maceration occur in French oak vats for a total period of 20 days. The wine was blended on December of the same year and racked again to new French barrels for 18 months in total.
