Viña La Rosa La Capitana Cabernet-Merlot Barrel Reserve 2018
|REGION||Cachapoal Valley, Chile|
Established in 1824 by the Ossa Family, Viña La Rosa is one of Chile's oldest wineries, and is renowned for its award-winning, consistently excellent estate-grown and bottled wines. Viña La Rosa has 864.1 hectares (2,135.2 acres) of vineyards planted in the Cachapoal Valley.
The Cachapoal valley is located in the warm, central part of Chile, a two and a half hour drive from Santiago, Chile's capital city. Cachapoal, which lies in the northern part of the Rapel Valley, is one of Chile's historic wine growing regions and within it, Viña La Rosa enjoys a unique position on the banks of the Cachapoal river.
The climate is ideal for growing good quality wine grapes. The Cachapoal Valley is protected by the Chilean coastal range, which reduces the influence of cool and humid winds coming from the Pacific Ocean.
Assembly of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot. Aged in French oak barrels for 9 months.
Concentrated palate, with a silky texture and fine tannins, long and persistent finish in the mouth. On the nose an exquisite fruit, complex with notes of black cherry, cassis, blueberries and a touch of oak.
