Vina Laurent is a labor of love for the husband & wife team of Damien and Lorena Laurent. Damien is originally from Bordeaux, France where he grew up learning how to make wine from his grandfather and father. For twelve years, he ran the family’s estate, Chateau L’Escart. When the couple began looking for terroir to express their passions, naturally, they looked to Lorena’s home of Chile. They planted their organically farmed vineyards in 2008 and built the natural, gravity flow winery in 2011. All the wines are fermented with native yeasts, partial whole cluster & zero Sulphur additions.
This 100% Cab Sauv from Maipo Valley has high-toned aromas & flavors of blackberry, blueberry, purple flowers and wild herbs, with a welcome hint of graphite. A beautifully balanced red with real purity to its dark berry core, a medium-to-full body & a silky smooth finish. This is a pretty wine with great structure. Once again proving that ‘Natural” doesn’t have to mean weird.
