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 matches well with spicy dishes from the grill.

Description

The relatively small bodega Chakana has made the choice for terroir-typed wines with the step to organic and even biodynamic viticulture. The Italian adviser 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 origin.

Almost automatically the grapes for this beautiful cabernet sauvignon are picked by hand. The steep hill vineyard lies at 1,300 meters above sea level, on the foothills of the Andes in the Uco Valley. Characteristic of this part of Mendoza is the big difference in day and night temperature and the higher humidity than other zones. Ideal conditions for a smooth and long ripening of the cabernet sauvignon grapes.

After the two fermentations, the wine ripens twelve months in small wooden casks of French oak, about 40% new and 60% of second and third year use. Special, distinctive quality.
