Granito Cabernet Sauvignon / Carmenere, J Bouchon

Granito Cabernet Sauvignon / Carmenere

Description

Granito is a micro-terroir in a granitic soil of more than 120 million years old, composed of granitic rocks with a high degree of decomposition, producing a wine with great structure and length. This blend is from Mingre state, Maule's dry coastal area, 193m above sea level. Old vines which receive no irrigation are hand harvested at the end of March and fermented in old concrete tanks. The wine is aged for 18 months in casks or foudre. The resulting wine is beautifully balanced with juicy blackcurrant fruit on the palate balanced by a lovely minerality and a long, smooth finish.

Producer Details

Bouchon history begins with an adventurous young French man’s dream almost a century and a half ago. Emile Bouchon left his little home of small winegrowers in France, to board on a ship, towards Chile in the spring of 1887. Emile came as a winemaker adviser and after many years of hard work, he created his own wine cellar in Colchagua Valley, that his family continue to this day.
