In the mouth the wine is soft and fruity, perfectly balanced with fine, smooth tannins.
Why Do We Love This?
The grapes come from different growers in Chile’s Central Valley, where there is apredominance of alluvial soils in most areas. A wide range of strategies is used inmanaging the canopy, all aimed at maximizing the amount of sunshine reaching thearea where the fruit is ripening. The preferred technique consists in training the shootsvertically, which improves their exposure to the sun’s rays and enhances thedevelopment of flavour in the fruit. Irrigation is applied in a measured fashion, inorder to maintain the balanced growth of the vine and achieve a constant rhythm ofripening. The grapes are harvested by hand to ensure that they reach the winery intop condition. They are separated from the stalks and then crushed, leaving aconsiderable percentage of the grapes whole. Then the must is put on one side toferment, having been inoculated with selected yeasts to produce alcoholicfermentation. This process is accompanied by pump-overs to extract the colourand flavours found in the grape-skins, and takes 7 days. The temperature iscontrolled at between 26º and 28ºC in order to obtain maximum aromas andvarietal character. Once alcoholic fermentation is complete, malolacticfermentation takes place naturally. The wine is stored in tanks, while awaiting itsbottling date.
