Haras de Pirque Hussonet Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Dark violet in color this wine is filled with spicy, fresh black fruit aromatics. On the palate, it is lively, expressing rosemary, laurel and mint touches.
Haras de Pirque is the union of two passions in a unique place where thoroughbred breeding and fine wine elaboration come together. The estate today covers 600 hectares, gently ascending in its southern boundary by the foothills of a transverse cord of the Cordillera de los Andes, in Pirque, Chile. In 1992, this sector of foothills was planted with 120 hectares of vineyards planted mainly with Cabernet Sauvignon, Carménère, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, from which they create premium wines and excellence that today gives life to their exclusive and award-winning winery. In addition, 20 more hectares of Syrah and Cabernet Franc were added in 1998.
