THE VALLEY AND THE VINEYARDS
The grapes that give rise to our varietal wines are grown in Chile’s Central Valley, home to our country’s main winegrowing regions. The Mediterranean climate of this historic valley brings rainy winters and hot, dry summers—ideal conditions to grow healthy grapes of perfect ripeness. Due to its great diversity of soil types and microclimates, every variety of this line finds the best conditions in the valley, breathing life into wines of fine and authentic varietal expression.
The grapes used in this Carmenère were harvested either mechanically or manually depending on the vineyard. They are subsequently fermented and macerated with their skin in stainless steel tanks in order to extract color, flavors and textures. These processes are carried out under controlled temperature conditions and using selected yeasts. Once fermentation is completed, the wine is aged in tanks for a few months to attain greater smoothness, complexity and subtle notes of wood.
Color: Deep and intense purple color.
Nose: Black fruit-scented nose with a smooth background of vanilla, tobacco leaf and roasted bell pepper.
Palate: Medium-bodied wine with juicy dark fruit notes of blackberry, blueberry and plum that lead to a touch of black pepper and cigar box flavors. Easygoing tannins and good persistence.
