This Cabernet Sauvignon shows the fresh expression of red fruits mixed with mineral notes and graphite, resulting in a complex and diverse expression of its aromas. On its palate, it stands out for the great balance between its refined tannins and its freshness, as well as its good concentration. A dense wine, with a long persistence
After more than 30 years, Don Melchor has reached a solid position that enables it to face new challenges, highlighting its maturity and ability to express its own identity through Viña Don Melchor. This identity is built upon a base of three fundamental pillars—its impeccable heritage and history, the peerless conditions of its terroir, and the deep understanding and expertise in the making of the Don Melchor wine. Meticulous research, careful study and the painstaking dedication of winemakers have seen over the lands.
The vineyard today consists of 127 hectares, carefully divided into seven parcels, of which roughly 90 per cent hold Cabernet Sauvignon vines, with 7.1 per cent Cabernet Franc, 1.9 per cent Merlot and the final one 1 per cent growing Petit Verdot grapes. The Cabernet Sauvignon vines average more than 30 years of age and correspond to a selection originally brought over from Bordeaux at the end of the 19th Century.
