Indomita, Nostros Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva, Maipo, Chile, 2020

Indomita, Nostros Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva, Maipo, Chile, 2020

Producer Profile

The dynamic winemaking team at Indómita skillfully craft wines from their vineyards in two of Chile’s very best regions.

The cooler climate Casablanca is great for Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir while the warmer Maipo Valley offers classic Cabernet Sauvignon and Carménère. Indómita produce superb, expressive wines that are both beautiful and stunning value for money.

Viticulture

Closest wine region to the city of Santiago. Vineyards stretch eastward from Santiago to the Andes and westward to the coast to form three distinct sectors of the Maipo Valley best known for its well-balanced red wines. Alto Maipo reaches into the foothills and produces some of Chile’s leading Cabernets. Central Maipo is one of the country’s oldest and most diverse productive regions, and Coastal Maipo—a relative newcomer—benefits from the cool maritime influence that slides over and between the Coastal Mountains.

Winemaking

This wine is made from fruit grown in Maipo but vinified at the state of the art winery in Casablanca. The fermentation is in stainless steel tanks at 28-29°C. There is a period of post fermentation maceration which last approximately 1 to 7 days. The wine is aged for 12 months in new French and American oak barrels.
