2008 Bodegas RE Cabergnan, Maule Valley

Sold Out

Another fascinating blend from Bodegas RE, this is made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Carignan. 2008 was RE’s second harvest, although they lost their whole 2007 harvest due to the earthquake. This wine has substance and character with lifted notes of redcurrant fruit vying with darker blackcurrant. The tannins are grippy and the finish is savoury and long. Vinified in large amphorae and later aged in 100% new American oak for 18 months, this was kept in bottle for two years before release. Catriona Felstead MW - New World Buyer
