About Haras De Pirque 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva, Hussonet, Maipo Valley

Haras de Pirque is a union of two passions in a unique place where thoroughbred horse breeding and fine wine making come together. In Pirque, Chile in the foothills of the Andes they planted 290 acres of vineyards in 1992, mainly Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. They produce outstanding wines and name them for their famous racehorses like this Hussonet Gran Reserva Cab. Owned by the famed Antinori Family of Tuscany their winemaking team led by Renzo Cotarella is in charge of the whole process. Grapes were hand-picked end of April. The special parcels selected for Hussonet undergo careful hand management throughout the year to produce grapes of very high quality.


This 2016 is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Carménère, the lots are vinified separately and the wine is aged 12 months in French oak barrels. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered.

The Wine Spectator said "Focused, with dried green herbal notes to the concentrated dark fruit and Asian spice flavors. Slate and French roast accents show on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2023."

James Suckling scored this 90 points and said "This has a sheen of sweetly spicy aromas, vanillin in particular, and there’s a smooth, juicy and vibrant core of blackcurrant, plum and cherry aromas and flavors in behind. Modern, drinkable cabernet here. Drink or hold."
