Viña Siegel is a family operated winery with a well-established tradition and long history. For generations we have been dedicated to the art of crafting wines with strong identities.
Our Special Reserve wines represent the union of tradition and innovation in two generations. The grapes are sourced through careful selection of our best vineyards. Their ripe and round tannins clearly express the terroir of Colchagua. Siegel Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been aged for 12 months in french oak barrels, lending it structure and complexity. The wine is deep ruby red and presents aromas of Cassis, red fruits, black pepper, black cherries, tabacco, cinnamon and chocolate. On the palate it is highly concentrated with juicy notes of red fruits and spices.
|Vintage:||2016||Grape Varietals:||100% Cabernet Sauvignon||ABV:||14%|
|Aging:||Aged in American and French oak barrels for 10 to 12 months. Cold stabilisation occurs when necessary|
Pre-fermentative cold maceration for 5 days, with alcoholic fermentation occurring at 27-29°C to better extract polyphenols from the wine. Post-fermentative maceration for 2 to 3 weeks. Then part of the wine is decanted into barrels for 10-12 months. The rest of the wine finishes its malolactic fermentation in stainless-steel tanks. Once the wine has been blended it is smoothly clarified.
Serve with red meat, braised stews, grilled pork and flavorful cheeses.

"Gamy aromas of olive, brine and mulchy earth accent berry fruit on a nose that screams “old school Chile.” A tight, firm palate with rubbing tannins holds lightly herbal and spicy flavors of berry fruit and mint, while olive and green notes are draped all over the finish of this hot-year Cabernet. - Michael Schachner"

"Earthy, damp berry aromas are a touch rubbery, while a flush, obtuse palate is easygoing. Earthy berry flavors are round, plump and steady through a finish where some acidity finally appears. - Michael Schachner"

"Youthful purple. Dark berries, cherry liqueur, vanilla and clove on the deeply perfumed nose. Broad and fleshy in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and blackberry flavors that turn sweeter as the wine opens up. Picks up a smoky quality with air and finishes long, spicy and smooth; harmonious tannins add shape and gentle grip. - Josh Raynolds"

"This wine's ripe black cherry and cassis aromas include a tobacco note. The palate is forward and a bit aggressive, with chocolaty blackberry and brown sugar flavors with herbal underpinnings. It finishes fruity and bold. - Michael Schachner"

"Fascinating aromas of terracotta, iron and dark berry. Some blueberries too. Full body, firm tannins. Tangy and lively with outstanding fruit and tannin tension. Drink or hold."

"Glass-staining ruby. Powerful aromas of cherry pit, cassis, pipe tobacco, violet and leather. Sweet and focused in the mouth, offering chewy red and black fruit flavors and a jolt of peppery spices. The spice and dark berry flavors carry through a long, smoky finish, which is shaped by dusty, late-arriving tannins. - Josh Raynolds"

"I like the attractive combination of currants and orange peel on the nose and palate. Full body with firm tannins and fresh acidity. A wine with lively tension and bright fruit. Drink or hold."
