Gouguenheim Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina 2015
100% Cabernet Sauvignon with four months in American and French oak.
Deep ruby colour with purple hints. A classic cabernet sauvignon with aromas of black fruits, spices and a hint of vanilla scented oak. A range of layered flavours including chocolate and spice, leading into a long finish.
"this beautifully fragrant and genuine bargain cabernet from high-altitude vines in Mendoza." David Williams, The Observer, 1/2/2015
The grapes come from the 98 acres vineyard, located in the Uco Valley, which is over 3.600 feet above sea level. This region has a desert climate with 320 days of sun exposure a year and big temperature amplitude between day and night that reaches 30°F in summer. The soils are sandy and the water comes from the snow of the Andes Mountains by irrigation. All these exceptional conditions allow a perfect ripening of the grapes. This wine undergoes 15 days of fermentation between 25 – 28 ºC.
