Viñedo Chadwick, Puente Alto 2019

Viñedo Chadwick 2019

Strong Cabernet signature, with chewy tannins and a firm frame of mint leaf, eucalyptus and dark chocolate; fairly closed in on the finish with a touch of resistance from the tannins. Needs time, and on this tasting the tannins are stubborn, but knowing the track record of this wine, I am extremely confident it will reveal further nuances over the next few years. There is juice on the finish, along with a hint of rosebud and hawthorn brambles. Located at 650m from the Puente Alto DO of Chile’s Maipo Valley. 80% new French oak, 20% Stockinger oak casks.
