Mabo 2015

Crafted from a premium selected vineyard parcel in the Valley of Maule. A true expression of cool-climate terroir with a breathtaking intensity and richness. Deep and intense red with red fruit and blueberries aromas all together with black pepper notes. Great structure with ripe tannins and good acidity that bring freshness and long finish.
