Description

The grapes for this wine come from old vineyards located in the Maule Valley, in an area nestled in the Costal Mountain Range. The vineyards grow unirrigated on very poor and eroded soils. Their topography is of soft rolling hills, with a southward exposure. Harvest was carried out manually to make sure the fruit would arrive in good condition to the winery. Once destemmed, the grapes were crushed, leaving an important percentage of whole berries. They subsequently underwent a cold pre-fermentative maceration of 4 to 7 days to thus achieve a greater extraction of aromas. Fermentation lasted approximately 15 days using selected yeasts that were inoculated on the skins and juice. Daily pump overs were used for a better extraction of the colors and flavors found in the skin of the berries. To preserve the whole character of the fruit, fermentation was carried out between 26 to 28º C. Once the alcoholic fermentation was finished, the malolactic fermentation was carried out naturally. The wine was kept for some months in stainless steel tanks and in barrels before being bottled.
