Santa irene Cabernet sauvignon organic 2021
The 2021 Vinecol 'Santa Irene' Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza, Argentina, presents as a rich and intense red wine. This organic wine is characteristic of the Mendoza region, which is located on a high-altitude plateau at the edge of the Andes Mountains. Mendoza is responsible for about 70% of Argentina's annual wine production. The wine's style is deep, fruit-driven, and jammy, filled with ripe, rich fruit and a variety of spices, similar to the styles of Australian Shiraz, Sonoma Zinfandel, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The grape variety used is Cabernet Sauvignon, one of the most famous red wine grape varieties globally, known for its bold and robust characteristics. The 2021 vintage in Argentina was marked by a wetter and colder growing season than usual, with cool, damp conditions persisting into the summer. Significant frosts in the spring dramatically reduced yields.
