Siete Soles Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot - A young fruity wine from Chile that really delivers on flavour. Ripe red fruit aromas with notes of blackberries, blueberries and black pepper. Medium bodied and well-balanced.
The name Siete Soles was inspired by the legend of the seven suns (siete soles) depicted on the rocks of an ancient Inca site close to the winery.
The Siete Soles vineyards are situated in the Central Valley, where the climate is strongly influenced by the nearby Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountain range. Soils are a mixture of clay, loamy limestone and sand.
The grapes were destemmed and partially crushed, and the must immediately cooled to maintain flavours and aromas. There was a two-day cold pre-fermentation maceration to extract flavours and colour, before fermentation in stainless steel.
