Antiguas Reservas is the emblem wine of the vineyard, with over 80 years in its portfolio. Since its debut in 1927, it has always been a limited selection of the best Cabernet Sauvignon of Cousiño Macul’s vineyards.
Along the years, we have maintained its classic style, combining the maturity of the New World, the elegance of the traditional wines and a structure that allows an adequate storage capacity.
This elegant Cabernet Sauvignon was aged in French oak for 12 months and rested in bottle for a further 6 months prior to its release. It shows hint of spices, cherries and blackcurrants and is a perfect match for roasts and grills. Allow to breathe before serving.
Founded in 1856, Cousiño Macul is the only winery in Chile amongst those established in the 19th century that continues in the hands of the original founding family. The company remains 100% under family control, producing limited quantities of fine wines.
The mission of Cousiño Macul is to produce world-class wines that are unmistakably Chilean, carrying the distinctive character of the Maipo Valley.
The name of the winery is derived from the family name of its founder (Matías Cousiño), plus the name given to the area where the estate was built, within the Maipo Valley: the company name implies “the Cousiño estate at Macul”. “Macul” is a word from the language spoken by the indigenous people before the discovery of America; the language is Quechua, and Macul in Quechua means “right hand”.
