Vd’O 4 – Cabernet Sauvignon in Sand and Granite
Grape Varieties: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The weather of the 2009 vintage together with our rigorous work in the vineyard, has contributed to our Cabernet Sauvignon vines, which are planted on Olivardots state in 2003 on granite/sand soil, showing the features of this variety at its best at the end of ripening.
With a careful selection of grapes we make a limited production of three barrels of this wine which becomes part of the collection “Varietals de terrer”.
Vinification and ageing process
Cold soak (4ºC) and alcoholic fermentation at controlled temperature over 26-28ºC.
We combine the processing techniques punching down (pigeage) and pump over to extract the great personality of their grapes.
Long maceration and pressing at very low pressure.
Aged for 16 months in French oak barrels, stirring the lees (bâtonnage) and malolactic fermentation in them that will qualify harmonically its aromatic expression.
Bottled without fining or filtering.
It has an exhuberant bouquet: ripe red cherries, crème de cassis, smoky, spicy and Mediterranean herbs that provide us balsamic notes.
The palate is silky smooth on the entry, great complexity, elegance, balance with fine tannins and a great aromatic expression along the tasting.
