Cousino Macul

Classification

Founded in 1856, Cousiņo Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. The company remains 100% under family control, producing limited quantities of fine wines. Such is the high quality of the wines produced here that Hugh Johnson gave Cousino Macul the biggest compliment possible in the wine world naming them as "the First Growth of Chile".

This wine shows the essence of Merlot. Totally fermented in stainless steel tanks, it has lots of fruit, no wood and is extremely balanced

Ruby red in colour with purple tones. It?s a young and fresh wine with a soft nose reminiscent of blueberry & blackberry fruit & black plums with a hint of spice. In the mouth it is soft & luscious with dark steeped fruit flavours tinged with vanilla, prune & sweet chocolate in the finish.
