Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml

Tasting Notes:

The classical Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Manso de Velasco is produced with grapes from a cool vintage. It's spicy and turns meatier with time, with integrated oak aromas and moderate alcohol. There are notes of cedar wood and graphite. They are evolving towards the style of the wines from yesterday, with less alcohol—hence harvesting earlier—even if the grape provides for powerful wines (the vines are old and produce naturally concentrated wine). This has good drinkability and typicity. A textbook Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon. 58,822 bottles produced.

Tasting Notes:

Some berry and chocolate character with hints of stems. Medium body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish. Drink now.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Miguel Torres Chile is a Chilean winery that was founded in Curicó, in 1979, by the Spanish family company Miguel Torres. In its 570-acre (2.3 km2), the Viña Santa Digna vineyard cultivates the varieties Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Chardonnay (for their white wines) and Cabernet sauvignon (for their red and rosé wines). To a lesser extent they also cultivate Pinot noir, which contributes to the cuvee of a brut sparkling wine. As well as the wines that they sell under the Santa Digna brand, the conditions of the Chilean vineyard have also allowed for the selection of a number of single estates or terroirs, such as Manso de Velasco, which produces its Cabernet sauvignon from vines that are over a hundred years old and have never been grafted. All of the wines undergo a fermentation process in stainless steel tanks, with their temperature carefully controlled, and furthermore, in the case of some wines, in the aging cellar in barrels made of American and Nevers French oak. Miguel Torres Chile have 160 acres (65 ha) hectares of their own vineyards in the region of Curicó, plus another 530 acres (215 ha) that are leased out.
