"The 2017 Cota 500 is pure Cabernet Sauvignon from Cachapoal from a warm year that saw an early harvest of the alluvial vineyards. It fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in used French barrels for 11 months. The wine is 13.7% alcohol, and it seems to have some more acidity than the previous year. It feels very fruit-driven, with the oak perfectly integrated with the fruit, and it has classical notes of graphite. There is a stony sensation on the palate that is more a texture than a flavor." - 90pts. Wine Advocate

TASTING NOTES 

Black violet color. Interesting aromas of mushrooms, cocoa powder, tonka bean, blackberry preserve, and fertile earth with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a complex, medium-long grilled carrot and onion, marinated strawberry, pink peppercorn, and grilled bread finish with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A distinctive Cabernet with an oscillating sense of the fruity and the savory.

THE STORY TO KNOW

The Andes Plateau is the special conjunction of a warm Mediterranean climate with the geographic characteristics of the country, makes Chile an ideal and special place to develop a environmentally friendly viticulture and get a wide variety of wine styles.

In one of his many trips there, enologist Felipe Uribe was motivated to produce a exotic, elegant, unique wine. And so began this project based at 700 meters above sea level.
