- April 2017
35 years old vineyards in the Maipo Valley, established on alluvial soils, with a very low natural fertility. The soils are deep with no limitations for the roots development.
Maipo Valley is known for its wonderful natural conditions. Cold winter followed by a dry spring and summer. Huge temperature oscillation between day and night in summer, 33º celsius during day and 14 º celsius at night, give the perfect scenario for a slow ripening of the grapes. Cold air blows during the evening from the glaciers of the Andes in summer time.
The grapes were hand picked and carefully selected and cleaned before crushing. 5 days cold maceration at 8º Celsius.
Fermented in stainless steel tanks at 26º – 28º Celsius. Soft pumping overs during fermentation to extract more colour and flavours.
Once the fermentation was completed the wine had a 3 weeks maceration.
100% of the wine was aged in first and second use French barrels for 14 months.
Malolactic fermentation was completed in the barrels.
The wine was bottled unfiltered.
Intense ruby-red in color, with a bouquet of black fruits such as black currants, blueberries, and blackberries with dried figs, cigar box, and spice notes. The concentrated palate offers well-rounded ripe tannins that create the prominent backbone that leads the wine on to a long, lingering finish. Good aging potential.
Spicy red meats, wild fowl, ripe cheese, venison, and goose.
