Casa Real Cabernet Sauvignon is made only in the finest vintages and is the culmination of more than a century of winemaking tradition and expertise, combined with contemporary, state-of-the-art technology. It is designed to serve as a lasting reminder of Santa Rita’s commitment to produce the finest wine our terroir has to offer.
100% Cabernet SauvignonFully-ripened grapes are hand picked in a vineyard first planted in the mid 1950s. Grapes are partially crushed and fermented in French oak barrels, permitting ideal temperature control, for about 12 days, followed by another 15 days of pos-fermentation maceration. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is stored in 100% new French oak barrels for 16 months, with a racking off after 6 months to obtain a finer evolution of it tannins. The wine is bottled and aged for a further year prior to release.
