Tacora | Gran Reserva
REGION | Colchagua Valley, Chile
VARIETIES | Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (20%) Carmenere (20%)
VINIFICATION AND AGING | Pre-fermentative cold maceration for 5 days, with alcoholic fermentation occurring at 27-29°C to better extract polyphenols from the wine. Post-fermentative maceration for 2 to 3 weeks. Aged in French oak for 10 to 12 months.
TASTING NOTES | Appearance is a deep dark ruby red with intense purple notes. Black fruits, fig, currants and very light mint aromas combine with a hint of flowers and smoked aromas that set the first layer. The mocha, coffee, vanilla and cedar from a well seasoned and balanced oak rounds the wine with an attractive nose. Great structure, the right amount of tannins, alcohol, acidity and fruit provides balance with long a finish.
PAIRING | Spicy, well-seasoned white meats, red meats, wild game and vegetables.
