Summary: A unique single vineyard wine that bears the founder’s last name. Made with organic and biodynamic grapes. It only occurs when, according to our winemaker, the vineyards provide us with exceptional fruit to make a special and memorable wine.
Grapes are sourced from the Cauquenes Vineyard. Average age of vines is 7 years old.
Vinification: The grapes were hand picked using 800 kg bins and were not crushed on reception to the winery; the clusters were only de-stemmed. The whole berries had a total maceration of 35 days. Soft pigeage after maceration. Temperature is controlled between 26°C-28°C. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation took place in barrels and aged for 24 months in new French oak.
Bright ruby red, has a display of pleasant aromas of blueberries and black fruits such as plum, and cherry liqueur is very present. The palate is blackberry jam and chocolate. Its tannins are very intense, persistent and velvety providing a long finish.
