The wine comes from Los Lingues Estate. The soil presents a matrix of rocks in different states of decomposition, mainly as fragmented alterites, which give the balance sought between vigour, productivity and quality. Mineral notes are expressed because of the balanced extraction through the deep roots.
Vinification is conducted in small tanks to get the best extraction of aromas, flavors and silky tannins. After fermentation, the Koyle Royale Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak barrels for eighteen months, with no filtration.
Well-drained soils have a clay texture with volcanic rocks and colluvial stones that deliver unique minerals giving the right balance to
the Royale line. Both are key factors of optimal terroir for the production of high quality red wines.

- Tasting Notes:
The 2018s are fresher than the 2017s, and the 2018 Royale Cabernet Sauvignon, which contains 9% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot (different to previous years), feels complex, fresh, elegant and balanced. There is concentration and power in this wine but also balance and energy, surely the result of very good farming. Nevertheless, they are certified in organic and biodynamics. 92 PointsRobert Parker - The Wine Advocate
This big red is filled with concentrated dark plum, black cherry and berry flavors that show hoisin sauce accents. Notes of mocha and dark chocolate fill the creamy finish, with minty hints. Drink now through 2025. Vintage 2018, 91 PointsWine Spectator
Cola, mint and eucalyptus aromas are attached to a spicy berry tone. The full-bodied palate is saturated yet balanced, while pepper and blackberry flavors come with an herbal undertone. Drink through 2025.Wine Enthusiast
Deep, velvety color, with a balanced aromatic mix of herbs, cherries, and cedar aromas. Vibrant and elegant, shows the natural environment who surrounds our grapes from the Los Lingues vineyards, who announces its terroir with authority. The mouth feeling is firm, and finish with minerals and spices who show his unique origin.Viña Koyle
