Maray Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
Maray is an ancient grinding mill used in Chilean mining to break down large pieces of rock. The diversity of minerals found in Chile's soil is what gives these wines their personality and character.
A small scale, exclusive winery. Head winemaker, Felipe Müller East, has a wealth of experience from working at wineries all over the world and has won 'Winemaker of the Year' on several occasions. The winery itself is built to be gravity fed, letting nature do the hard work of transporting fruit and wine about the place, avoiding expending any unnecessary energy pumping the stuff around. Clever, eh?
The grapes arrive to the winery in small plastic boxes of 20 kilograms. The bunches are hand-sorted before going to the destemmer where the grapes are separated from the stems. After the destemmer the grapes are hand-sorted again. Finally, only the best grapes are sent to the tanks to start the fermentation process.
Deep red colour. A concentrated and ripe nose. The palate is full bodied with smooth tannins and structure. Ripe and concentrated dark fruits like plum and black cherry and hints of French oak.
