Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2017

The Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Maipo in Chile has to be one of the finest examples of a top value for money wine available. Cabernet Sauvignon is grown all over the world and is officially the most planted grape currently worldwide, however, to be a master at making wonderful wine with this grape is not so easy as just growing it. Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon combines wonderful eucalyptus characteristics with soft, supple tannins and an explosion of blackcurrant flavours. We recommend you buy some Perez Cruz wines and see for yourself why all the awards are going to this fantastic grower.

This family-owned boutique winery is located in the Alto Maipo region of Chile, boasted as the best region for growing superior Cabernet Sauvignon. The family planted their first vines in 1994 and created their first vintage in 2002. President Andres Perez Cruz has acquired an impressive collection of awards and gold medals starting with their first vintage, and today they are one of Chiles most awarded wineries. Their vineyard is comprised of 250 hectares of vines nestled in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. The vines are placed in the best location above sea level for growing grapes. The Mediterranean climate features rainy winters and dry summers resulting in healthy grapes. Award-winning architect Jose Cruz Ovalle designed and built their eco-friendly winery. He used native wood for the roof and stone foundation to pay homage to the Incas and the structures they left behind. The building design allows for the use of natural lighting. The winery uses its environment to promote temperature regulation and free-flowing air circulation. This makes Perez Cruz one of the most unique boutique estates in the world.

Vinification

At Perez Cruz wines, the grapes are handpicked. After being carefully selected, the grapes are gently crushed before being placed into stainless steel tanks. Perez Cruz uses cold maceration to bring out the best qualities from the grapes. They are then left to ferment in the stainless steel tanks for 24 days. After the fermentation is complete, the wine is transferred into French oak barrels where it is aged for twelve months.

Viticulture

Every step of the winemaking process is carefully thought out at Perez Cruz wines. The grapes are carefully planted in the most sought after areas of the Andes foothills. Each grape is handpicked to ensure only the best go into their wines. The eco-friendly design of their winery features a gravity-flow process with a three million litre capacity. The wines are then left to age in the barrel cellar featuring a capacity of 5,000 barrels. The barrel cellar is designed to take advantage of the below-ground conditions, allowing for the temperature and humidity to be controlled naturally.

 

Tasting Notes

Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon has ripe red fruits and spices on the nose followed by the aroma of toasted bread and vanilla. The full-bodied wine delivers a fruity flavour for the palate with ripe tannins and a soft finish.

Serving Suggestions

Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect complement to roast beef or sausage casserole. The smooth rich flavour will bring out the best in these meals. This delicious wine will not disappoint.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
