Description

Finesse, elegance, complexity, intensity, length and freshness are the unique characteristics that all together level up to extraordinary. VIK is a remarkable visionary Bordeaux style blend, which stands out for its formidable ability to evolve and move the consumer and ultimately indulge you in pure luxury. An inspired spring and a patient summer with average temperatures
nurtured the rapid ripening of tannins in the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc. Fall ushered in an early but joyful and expectant harvest. Both varieties were perfect: tannins were crisp,
tense, and nervous while also gently dynamic, accompanied by elevated fruit character marked by delicate aromas which lightly dance, seduce and enchant. After a 24-month barrel aging, the wine was bottled. This vintage departs from its predecessors by blending Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc exclusively. The maturity of the Cabernet Franc vines, apparent in the fruit’s new-found authority, delightful minerality and acidity, allowed for more prominence in the blend accounting for almost a quarter of the assemblage. Cabernet Sauvignon, at 76% of the blend, provides the wine’s long and dynamic structure and the nearly infinite finish. This vintage is precise, subtle, and elegant, delivering a story, whose chapters are visible in pours and pages turned in each sip. The story shares passionately the virtues of this terroir, the characteristics of the vintage as well as the entire team’s endeavors for quality and respect for nature. Serving temperature: 16ºC – 18ºC.
