The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards in the Colchagua Valley, established on alluvial, gravel-type soils with low natural fertility of the coastal range of mountains. Drip irrigation is used to control the growing process in the grapes. Harvest takes place in late April – early May. Grapes are handpicked.
Once the grapes are crushed, prior to fermentation the must goes on a 3 days cold maceration to extract colour and aromas. The must is then fermented for twelve days in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at tempera-tures ranging from 26° to 28°C.
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.
Wild purple in colour. Touches of tobacco, red and black cherries. It has a generous body with smooth and ripe tannins. It is a well-rounded wine with a juicy and lingering finish.
This wine is great with pastas, risotto, roast or grilled red meats and goulash.
