Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2015

Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is 100 percent Cabernet.

A ripe, fleshy style, with blackberry and fig sauce notes laced with bittersweet Grenache. Powerful and layered, with classic Cabernet aromatics. Dark and ripe, with a nice loamy edge lurking on the finish.

70% of the resulting wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels to fully reveal the character of the Andean terroir, and the remaining 30% is aged in concrete vats.

The grapes are carefully chosen and fermented in small lots to preserve the vineyard identity.

Alcoholic fermentation for 10 days with indigenous and selected yeasts, at temperatures of 26 and 30°C, combining, remontage, pigage and delestage in order to obtain the best quality of tannins and structure.

 


Obelisco Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Red Mountain 2011

78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17.6% Merlot, 3.6% Malbec and 0.8% Syrah.

The wine has a very rich purple, red-garnet color. Dark red and black fruit aromas like cherry, black cherry, blackberry and cassis, toasted oak, slight vanilla, with hints of maple syrup and allspice. On the palate this wine is medium full-bodied and slightly sweet with cherry, black cherry and blackberry fruit, toasted oak  and hints of maple syrup and clove spice. The mouthfeel is lush on the entry, lively in the mid-palate and finishes long with evident tannins and a hint of tartness

14.1 % Alcohol

Paradigm Cabernet Sauvignon  2011 (Magnum)

"Our 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of Cab Sauv, Merlot, and Cab Franc from our Oakville estate. Deep ruby red color with aromas of plum and black cherry, some spiciness, and hints of cedar and a light touch of French oak. Across the palate this wine is smooth as silk and ready to drink at this early age. Medium body and weight make for an easy to approach Cabernet. Flavors match the aromas, balance is refined, and the finish is soft and lush. Tasty now and over the next 10-12 years, but no need to wait."

Maipe was the Lord of the Winds for the ancient Andean people.  Argentineans still invoke his name to clear the skies after a heavy rain or to temper the summer heat.  These wines, children of the Sun and the Winds, are produced from grapes grown at the foothills of the Andes Mountains at an altitude of 3,000 feet above sea level.  The intense color and aromas capture the expression of the soils that gave them birth.

Maipe is produced in a state-of-the-art winery, Chakana, built with the purpose of achieving outstanding quality.

Chakana winery was founded by Juan Pelizzatti on May 2nd, 2002. Juan was driven to enter the wine industry first and foremost by his passion for wine, and also by the desire to invest his time and money on a product of agriculture. Although Juan did not know it at the time, the company was founded on the same day the Chakana was celebrated on the Andes highlands: on that same day, the Southern Cross (the Chakana for the Inca people) becomes vertical in the night Andean sky.
Juan's mission is to create an integral experience to introduce world consumers to the taste and culture of the Andes. His vision is to become one of the top 20 exporters of wine from Argentina, by consistently offering outstanding value for money.

Wine is currently produced in four different levels at Chakana, by winemaker Gabriel Bloise:
          Entry Level: Maipe
          Reserve Level: Maipe Reserve, Cueva de las Manos, Nuna
          Estate Selection
          Ayni


 The winemaking process is focused on treating the grapes with great care and with strict control of every step of the production.
Wines are designed under the responsibility of the renowned international wine consultant Alberto Antonini.
The winery is located on a 150 ha. estate, 34 km South of the city of Mendoza, in Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo.
The grapes grown are 35 year-old Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Deep and textured soils facilitate plant development and confer great body and structure to the wines.
The year-long sunny and dry conditions allow almost organic viticulture practices. The outstanding feature includes a great daily thermal amplitude, with mild days and cold nights, permitting a particular richness of polifenols that improves the wines flavors and color.
A drip irrigation system has been set up to achieve a precise control of the vegetative cycle and a rational use of water. Waters are processed and used in the vineyards.
