About the Vineyard
The valley, influenced by the presence of the Andes mountain range and the Pacific Ocean, has a Mediterranean climate, with cool, dry summers and mild, rainy winters. These conditions promote the production of excellent quality wine grapes. The valley soils show a wide diversity, where deep and mineralized alluvial soils of fluvial origin predominate.
The grapes were harvested between March and April, when their organoleptic qualities, aromas and tannins were at their best. Those selected clusters were transported to the winery. Then the must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of between 24°C and 26°C. Subsequently, 40% of the wine remained in contact with French and American oak during 4 months.
This wine is intense ruby red in color. The nose reveals fresh fruits such as raspberries, strawberries and blackberries along with soft floral notes and a touch of vanilla and caramel. Nice body and balanced acidity, with ripe tannins, and a pleasant ending.
Best served at between 16°C and 18°C. This wine pairs well with mature cheese, grilled meat, as well as roast duck or lamb.
