Gran Reserva – Cabernet Sauvignon
Much like the Nautilus fossil that told us the story of the ocean-turned-mountain where our vineyards sit, our Gran Reserva wines tell us the tale of grapes turned into the most sublime of all high-altitude, single-vineyard, barrel-aged wines.
Faithful to the style of Finca El Origen ́s Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon features an intense ruby red colour contributed by its 8% Malbec.
The nose offers black fruits with vegetal notes. Notes of peppermint give afresh sensation and accompany the vanilla aromas from the barrel.
The mouth is fresh, with good acidity and punch, nice tannins and lower alcohol content.
