Cabernet Sauvignon Legado Reserva Price € 15.20
The Legado Reserva range, produced in the most renowned valleys in Chile, uses grapes which can come from one or more vineyard from the same destination of origin. Through this range, we look to express the essence and individual characteristics which give each label a unique sense of origin. Legado Reserva is fermented using only native yeast and wine additives are scarcely used during the fermentation process, just small amounts of sulfur dioxide. The wine was aged in old French oak barrels, with the aim of ensuring that the aromas and tastes from the wood are not transferred to the wine and thus do not mask the characteristics typical of its terroir.

Ageing: The wine is aged for 16 months in old French oak barrels, with the aim of ensuring that the aromas and tastes from the wood are not transferred to the wine and thus do not mask the characteristics typical of its terroir.
