Description

Clos des Fous Cauquenina

The Clos des Fous Cauquenina is a beautiful dark ruby-red color with violet highlights. Outstanding fruit, with a nose full of red berries, red currant, black cherry, blueberry. Spices like black pepper, tea leaves.

Notes of graphite and hints of violets framed its great complexity. Those elements come through on the palate, with fresh black and red fruit, revealing a full-bodied wine.

This wine opens generously, very silky and lush on the palate. In mid palate is round and velvety with very fine tannins and the excellent acidity enhance its liveliness and balance. Decanting is recommended.

Vineyard

This vineyardbelongs to Tato Acuña’s  family, our friend and sommelier, who has been a precursor of the wonderful terroir of  Guarilihue area.

Guarilihue corresponds to one of the most beautiful Terroirs in Chile, lost in time, at the bottom of Itata, keeping the history of the Chilean wine-growing with very ancient, familiar, small vineyards, which have been inherited from generation to generation. Guarilihue does not continue with the regulations of industrial wine-growing.

The vineyard was planted on high density more than 70 years ago. It is worked in Gobelet and it was planted like a “rastafari” field blend, where several varieties  live  one next to the other, like Muscat, Country, Cinsault and Carignan. This vineyard has never had irrigation and it is worked by local farmers with its ancestral know how.
