Grapes were hand-picked end of April. The parcels selected for this wine are organically managed preserving the characteristics of the Pirque area. Average yield 6,5 ton/ha.

Vinification

Individual vineyard parcels were fermented separately and pumped over regularly for soft and elegant tannin extraction. After the wines are pressed off skins, they are racked into barrel for undergoing malolactic fermentation. After 12 months in new French oak and one year old barrels, the wine is bottled and storage for at least one year before release.

Tasting Notes

Dark violet.
Spicy and fresh, full or black fruits, lively on the palate. Rosemary and laurel character with a minty touch. Ideal to pair with lamb, pasta or risotto. Drink now or wait for a beautiful evolution of this Chilean wine from the Andes mountains Region.
