  • Vineyard Notes:

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.

  • Vinification:

The grapes were hand picked and were 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.
