The 2018 1865 Selected Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with fruit from Buin in Alto Maipo, the classical zone for the variety. It fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts and matured in 300-liter French oak barrels, 20% of them new, for one year. 2018 was a balanced year, and the wine has good color and aromatic intensity, keeping the varietal aromas and the textbook Cabernet tannins. There is good ripeness without excess, and it has volume and integrated acidity. 800,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in September 2019.
