2011 Gandona Encosta 750ml
Tasting Notes: The 2011 vintage offers bright and dynamic aromas of raspberries and red cherries that are superimposted with cardamom, nutmeg, caramel and honeysuckle. Rich milk chocolate, pomegranate and framboise are layered onto fine-grained tannins. An interplay of burnt sugar and rhubarb integrate seamlessly into the well-structured toasted oak.
Winemaker's Notes: Encosta Cabernet Sauvignon originates from the steeply terraced hillsides of Gandona Estate and its terra cotta-colored, volcanic soil. The 2011 vintage is a wine celebrating the very soul of hillside fruit capturing the essence of the vine's interaction with earth and sun.
