Quiebre Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Nerikhiue, DO Valle de Lolol, Colchagua
Simple, balanced and fresh. Blackberry, blackcurrant and cassis, menthol with a floral character, a bit of smoke and warm spice on the finish.
Nerkihue (pronounced ne-reh-key-way) is a family winery located in Lolol, Colchagua Valley. Its vineyards grow on steep slopes that, together with the marine influence and shallow soils, give rise to aromatic, fresh, and supremely elegant wines.
The vines are grown in a combination of granite and gray-loam soil slopes which are cooled by the Pacific oceans influence on the region. Fermentation takes place in steel, then the wine spends up to 14 months aging in natural barrels.
