Tasting note Chakana Cabernet Sauvignon
Full Argentinian red wine with refined aromas of coconut, coffee, forest fruit and oak. The full, spicy and powerful taste goes well with spicy dishes from the grill.
The relatively small bodega Chakana has made the choice for terroir-typified wines with the move to organic and even biodynamic viticulture. The Italian advisor Alberto Antononi plays an important role in this. He is a staunch opponent of thick, oak-dominated wines that hardly have a testable relationship with the origin.
It goes without saying that the grapes for this beautiful cabernet sauvignon are picked by hand. The steep hill vineyard is located at an elevation of 1,300 meters, on the foothills of the Andes in the Uco Valley. Characteristic for this part of Mendoza is the big difference in day and night temperature and the higher humidity than other zones. Ideal conditions for an even and long maturation of the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
After both fermentations, the wine matures for twelve months in small wooden casks of French oak, about 40% new and 60% from second and third year use. Special, distinctive quality.
