|Wine maker notes
|Located between the massive Andes Mountains and the low coastal mountains of the Pacific Ocean, the warm and dry vineyards of El Suspiro are world-renowned for producing outstanding red wines with rich color, full body and varietal character. The steep rock soil maintains moisture for the vines during the intense summer heat while the coastal mountains temper the cool maritime influences of the Pacific.
|Root:1 Cabernet Sauvignon is an exceptional match with full-flavored cheeses, pasta with red sauce, steak, ribs, and chocolate.
|Chile”s unique geography makes it one of very few grape-growing regions in the world where original European rootstock has been unaffected by phylloxera. While most vineyards around the world are planted on grafted rootstock, Root:1 grapes are grown on pure, ungrafted roots, producing wines of outstanding quality, with pure fruit flavors and authentic varietal character.
