Lazuli Cabernet Sauvignon
Beautiful ruby red colour. Elegant nose displaying black fruits like cassis, black cherry and plum. The palate shows good acidity and balance, ripe, soft tannin, floral and spicy notes with a long finish. Pairs well with BBQ pork ribs, Asian stir fry and roasted vegetables.
Named after the gemstone 'Lapis Lazuli', this wine is only produced during the best vintage and has an impressive character with good aging potential
About The Winery
In the early 1990's, Bordeaux luminaries Bruno Prats (Chateau Cos d'Estournel) and Paul Pontallier (Chateau Margaux) discovered the high calibre of cabernet sauvignon from Chile's Alto Maipo region. Together with Felipe de Solminihac, a well-known Chilean agronomist, oenologist and winemaker in the country, they acquired 45 acres in 'Quebrada de Macul', the historical heart of Maipo valley vineyards, where Vina Aquitana was born. Since January 2003, Ghislain de Montgolfier (CEO of Bollinger Champagne), became the fourth partner.
