2017 Cabernet Sauvignon

VINEYARD

The grapes for our Eyzaguirre wines grow at our vineyard called San Jorge, which is located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, on the southern bank of the Tinguiririca River, 55 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean and 45 kilometers from the Andes. The soils of the vineyard, near the river, are deep and stony with clay and loam, with good moisture retention.  Our vines are 26 years old and are managed in low density trellis with drip irrigation.

CERTIFIED SUSTAINABLE

Vino de Eyzaguirre wines have always been farmed sustainably. Our early motivation in using these green practices was easy: Sustainable grapes yield the cleanest and more pure varietals.

NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER

Rich, deep burgundy. Aromatic profile features red apples and raspberries. On the palate, bright fresh cherries with toasty elements and just a hint of pepper.
