Casarena Owen's Vineyard SV Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon 75cl
Casarena Owen's Vineyard SV Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 is a big, bold and assertive wine with a wonderful texture on the palate with a seamless tannin structure.
Although Argentina is most renowned for its full-bodied Malbecs, the Cabernet Sauvignons actually hold the greatest scores and provide incredibly grand wines. Casarena's wines are from carefully selected parcels of vineyards with only small batched created in the best years. The grapes for the Owen's Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon emanate from a tiny, high altitude plot that was planted in the 1930s, and whose vines average 85 years of age.Read more...

Originally planted in the 1930s, Owen's Vineyards used a traditional over the head pergola trellising system. This system alongside their extremely nutrient-rich soil and significant age of the vineyard means that the grapes grown here show powerful, typical varietal notes with wonderfully soft tannins.
