Summary: Planted at 170m above sea level in the Maule Valley, the climate is temperate with a six-month dry season and an annual rainfall of 700 mm. The high temperatures during the ripening period are moderated by cool breezes from the Pacifc Ocean. The average age of vines here is 21 years old.
Vinification: The grapes were handpicked, and the bunches were destemmed but not crushed. The whole berries then underwent a cold maceration for four to nine days prior to fermentation in 40,000-liter tanks using selected and native yeasts. Malolactic fermentation took place spontaneously in tanks. Aging takes place in 100% stainless steel tanks.
Dark red in color. Intense and complex on the nose, with spices and ripe red fruits such as cherries, raspberries, and plums mixed with aromas of blackberries and anise. The palate is juicy and powerful with velvety-soft tannins and a long finish.
