Cousiño-Macul Antiguas Reservas Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Fruity and Peppery

Cousiño-Mac­ul prides itself on its flag­ship wine, the Antiguas Reser­vas Caber­net Sauvi­gnon. With more than 90 years in the indus­try, this wine is utter­ly rep­re­sen­ta­tive of their clas­sic mix­ing of Old World ele­gance and New World maturity.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

This wine is ruby red in col­or with vio­let trim, pre­sent­ing an intense fruity aro­ma filled with cher­ry and straw­ber­ry mixed with black pep­per and mint. On the mouth, it is ele­gant, with firm, ripe tan­nins in addi­tion to a long-last­ing fin­ish. The fruit of a man­u­al har­vest, this wine was aged in French oak bar­rels for 12 months, then clar­i­fied and fil­tered before bottling. 

PAIR­INGS

This wine is the ide­al com­pan­ion for red meats, espe­cial­ly beef and game meats. From stews to steaks, lamb chops to Veal Milanese, this Caber­net Sauvi­gnon will suit just per­fect­ly. And if you’re hav­ing this with a cheese plat­ter, we rec­om­mend cheeses of medi­um-high inten­si­ty, like Grana Padano or goat cheeses.

AN IMPRES­SIVE, WELL-PRE­SERVED COLLECTION

Cousiño-Mac­ul pro­duces 9 vari­eties of grapes on their Mac­ul and Buin estates in the Alto Maipo region of Chile: Caber­net Sauvi­gnon, Mer­lot, Syrah, Caber­net Franc, Petit Ver­dot, Chardon­nay, Sauvi­gnon Gris, Sauvi­gnon Blanc, and Ries­ling. More than 60 per­cent of their vine­yard space is ded­i­cat­ed to red wine grape pro­duc­tion, marked by their tra­di­tion­al masales selec­tions, which begin in the vine nurs­eries. This allows them to pre­serve the genet­ic vine strains brought to Chile By Luis Cousiño from Europe all the way back in 1860.
