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.

The grapes, of our own production, were hand-harvested and then underwent a cold maceration for five days. Next, alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts took place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 27°C. 40% of this wine was then aged in French and American oak barrels for a period for six months.

Cellaring Recommendations: Three to four years
