Winemaker’s Notes

In the Maule Valley, terroirs with a high percentage of clay determine the mineral character of our wines. The cold evening breezes from the Andes mountains caress our vineyards, causing extreme fluctuations in temperature. The resulting wines are intense in colour, full of fresh fruit, highly concentrated and with mature tannins, delivering a well-balanced palate.

Selected grapes from our own vineyards were carefully hand-harvested in the early morning to preserve the aromas. 40% of the fermentation took place in second use oak barrels, with the remaining 60% in stainless steel tanks at temperaturas of between 14°C and 16°C with selected yeasts. In order to maintain the varietal caracter of the wine, it was not subjected to malotactic fementation.

Cellaring Recommendations: Three to four years
