The 2005 vintage in Isla de Maipo was exceptional, with low yields, no rain at all in the growing period from bud break to harvest. Maximum temperatures in the area ranged from 28-30 ºC (82 – 86 ºF), with less than 180 mm of rain during winter time so it was a dry year. These conditions allow Cabernet Sauvignon grapes to ripen fully displaying a great flavor and full concentration.
With our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Isla de Maipo, we obtained an optimal phenolic ripeness, solid and round tannins, full color and a great fruit expresssion.
This wine is delicious, and a pretty good value. It has become my around the house wine.
