Grapes are sourced from Maule Valley and Lontué Valley. Vines range in age from 20 years to 100 years old.
Vinification: The grapes were hand picked and were not crushed on reception at the winery; the clusters were only destemmed. The whole berries had four days of cold maceration prior to fermentation and ten to twelve days of maceration at 25ºC after fermentation. Selected and native yeasts were used during the fermentation, which took place in tanks of 40,000 Lts. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation took place in tanks. Aging occurs in 70% in stainless steel and 30% in used oak barrels (three years old), followed by being aged in oak for four months.
