Product Overview

Importer Notes:
"Finis Terrae is a clear reflection of the Maipo Valley terroir expressed through the finest of
Cousiño's Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from each vintage. It is a blend created by tasting hundreds of combinations of Cabernet and Merlot to achieve the ideal balance of fruit, acid, tannin, alcohol and oak.

75% of this wine comes from the oldest vineyards in Macul Estate, used for our Icon Lota, and 25% from other vineyards used for Antiguas Reservas from both Buin and Macul Estate. After a careful selection while harvesting, the grapes are transported in small boxes of 10 kg to the cellar, where they undergo a second selection of bunches and a third one of single berries. The selected berries are carried into stainless steel tanks for a long period of skin contact and settling without oxygen at 7°C (44.6°F).

Finis Terrae 2017 presents an intense and deep red bright color. It´s aromas are intense, reminding us to red berries, leather, liquor candy and toasted vanilla. The mouthfeel is thick and gentle, tannins are round and very present, it´s balanced with a very rich acidity which makes us enjoy a very long experience.

This is an excellent wine for intense preparation such as Filet mignon with red wine reduction or grilled Lamb chops accompanied by truffle potato skins."

"The 2017 Red Blend Finis Terrae is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 5% Syrah from Maipo. It aged for 15 months in new French oak barrels. Dark garnet red in hue. The complex nose presents ripe blackcurrant and blackberry notes with hints of mint, pepper, licorice and bay leaf; the oak adds cigar box aromas. Voluminous with structured, firm tannins. The flavors are fruity and well-defined with blackcurrant coming to the fore at the back of the mouth. A typical warm year Maipo Bordeaux blend." -JH, Mar/2023
