Faithful to the style of Finca El Origen´s Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon features an intense ruby red colour contributed by its 8% Malbec.
Clusters were manually selected during harvest to ensure only the best grapes were used. A short 3-day maceration preceded the 14-day maceration with select yeasts, which included pumping over and punching down operations for a more delicate structure. Total maceration time was 24 days. The wine was then transferred to French and American oak barrels (25% first use) for a 10 to 12-month aging period. The wine was bottle-aged for another 6 months.
