House of Morandé 2010

The House of Morandé is an award winning Bordeaux style red wine blend from Viña Morandé. Sourced from the finest blocks of the San Bernardo property, located in the Maipo Alto region of the Maipo Valley, this is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend complemented by the addition of other red varieties such as Cabernet Franc, Carignan, Syrah and Carménère. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, the wine is fined with egg white and decanted for two months before being bottled unfiltered.

Intense cherry red in colour the aromas offer fresh red and black fruits with a light touch of spice such as cinnamon, cloves, and vanilla that lend outstanding complexity. The palate is agile and expansive with great volume and flavour. The strength and elegance of the Cabernet Sauvignon lend it great character, while the Cabernet Franc contributes delicious tannins and dark chocolate. The Carignan provides freshness and sour cherry notes, and the Syrah adds a slightly smoky sensation. Its balance is very complex, and it has a long life ahead in the bottle. Ideal with red meats, game, braises, and strong cheeses.
