Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *
A deep red wine with ruby-coloured highlights.
Reminiscent of black fruits such as maqui, blueberry and blackberry, with sweet notes of vanilla and fresh tobacco.
Of dark chocolate, coffee and crystalized fruit, long persistence and a great finale in the mouth.
Why Do We Love This?
The fruit comes from the Maule Valley, where the soils are predominantly alluvial andstony in most of the vineyards, though in other zones there are some soils with a sandyprofile. The vineyard is managed efficiently in order to produce healthy,highly-concentrated grapes. This, together with strictly controlled irrigation,produces balanced growth of the vine and achieves a constant rate of ripening.The grapes are harvested manually to ensure that they reach the winery in goodcondition. They are separated from the twigs and leaves and then crushed, leaving aconsiderable percentage of the grapes whole. The must is then subjected topre-fermentative cold maceration for 4 to 7 days to achieve greater aromaextraction. Fermentation takes about 15 days and is achieved by inoculating theskins, pips and juice with selected yeasts. Pump-overs are carried out to extract thecolour and flavours from the grape skins. Fermentation temperature is regulated atbetween 26 and 28°C in order to retain the character of the fruit. Once alcoholicfermentation is complete, malolactic fermentation is carried out naturally. The wineis stored in stainless steel tanks and in casks for a few months prior to bottling.
