  • Vineyard Notes:
The grapes come from different growers in Chile’s Central Valley, where there is a predominance of alluvial soils. Vineyards are trained vertically to improve their exposure to the sun’s rays and enhancing the develop-ment of flavor in the fruit. The grapes are harvested by hand to ensure that they reach the winery in optimal conditions. They are separated from the stalks and then crushed.
  • Vinification:
A cold maceration process of 48 hours took place before starting fermentation. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks for about 10 days at controlled temperature of 26 and 28° C. Selected yeasts were added to the must. Once the alcoholic fermentation is finished, the malolactic fermentation is carried out naturally. It is stored in stainless steel tanks until bottling.
  • Tasting Notes:
Attractive and deep ruby-red color. The wine shows ripe blackberry and plum aromas with delicate hints of spice and crushed black pepper. Medium-bodied in palate, soft and fruity very well balanced by soft tannings. This is a wine with nice structure and pleasant aftertaste.
  • Serving Suggestions:

Ideal to combine with pasta and poultry dishes.
