Portillo Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
$55.99 price per bottle
This cabernet sauvignon was made entirely from hand-harvested grapes from select plots on our vineyard estate Finca El Portillo, located at 3,610 feet above sea level. Soils are alluvial, atop a gravel bed with good permeability and drainage. Wine maker notes The grapes are hand-harvested to preserve the optimum freshness of the fruit. After destemming, the grapes are transferred to stainless steel tanks, where cold maceration takes place at a temperature of 45 -50°F. Fermentation lasts for 10 to 15 days. After fermentation, the wine is racked by gravity, with no pumping, and is aged in stainless steel tanks.
