  • Vineyard Notes:
The grapes come from vineyards in the Maule Valley, where there is a predominance of alluvial, gravel-type soils with low fertility with and important clay loam at the basis of the profile. The vineyards are vertically positioned and double guyot pruned. Drip irrigation is used to control the ripening process in the grapes.Harvest takes place in late April – early May.
  • Vinification:
A 3 days cold maceration took place prior to fermenta-tion in order to extract color and aromas. The must is then fermented for 15 days in stainless steel with select-ed yeasts at temperatures regulated between 25° to 26° C. Light daily pump overs aid in extracting color and structure for the wine. The new wine later undergoes malolactic fermentation naturally. Most of the wine is held in stainless steel tanks, and 25% is aged in oak barrels for 6 months prior to bottling.
  • Tasting Notes:
Purple violet red. Blackberries, fresh herbs and spices such as cinnamon. This is a medium bodied wine, fruity with nice touches of vanilla, cloves and chocolate. Nice structure with soft tannins, fresh acidity and long aftertaste.
  • Serving Suggestions:
