Winemaker's Notes:

Intense ruby red with bright highlights. On the nose, red fruit, spicy and green pepper, nutmeg and licorice. It has sweet, firm tannins that give the body and structure characteristic of the strain. Its finish is nice and long.

Passionate and polite, this wine accompanies meat dishes with sauce (pepper, for example), emphatic and buttery cheeses, stews, well-seasoned white meat (pork) and tamales.

About Antucura:

Antucura means the ancient language of the Pehuenches - the first inhabitants of the area - "Stone of the Sun." We chose this name for our winery and lodge at Vista Flores because the vineyards that give the birth to our beloved wines grow here naturally, among stones and rocks. This special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was elaborated with both care and passion. It aged in new French oak barrels for twelve months before bottling, then stored until ready for release.

Our winery mingles with the terroir, the ancient viticultural traditions and the new vinification technologies. Born to be the matrix of super premium and ultra premium wines, our winery counts with top quality controls and extra care. Through a special gravity flow system the grapes are gently pressed and therefore wines are nurtured in unparalleled conditions.
