De Martino La Cancha Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
The diversity of Chile’s landscapes is expressed in this series of wines from eight exceptional vineyards. A precise combination of climate, soil, grape variety and viticulture is combined with traditional, natural winemaking that respects the personality of each vineyard to produce unique wines that faithfully respect De Martino’s style.
The manually harvested grapes were 100% destemmed. Wild ferment in stainless steel was followed by 5 days’ post-fermentative maceration. The malolactic fermentation was completed in the tank. Then the wine was matured in 2,500-litre foudres for 24 months.
The wine reveals fresh aromas of blackcurrants and violets, together with complex notes of tobacco leaf, cedar and graphite. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied with intense, ripe fruit, balanced by elegant, fine tannins, vibrant acidity and moderate alcohol. It has depth and weight in the mouth, along with a long and persistent finish. This wine can be enjoyed while still youthful, but it has sufficient structure to develop greater complexity over the next 15-20 years.
