Origin

Haras de Pirque own vineyards in Maipo-Andes Valley. 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 7 ton/ha.

Vintage Conditions

Vintage 2014 presented high temperatures during ripening period but with an extraordinary difference between night and day that finally enhanced all the classic aromas of the Maipo Andes Region.

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 one year old French barrels, the wine is bottled and storage for at least one year before release.

Deep red color.
Notes of toffee and caramel, with a light herbal and fresh notes coming from the Andes Region. In the mouth is concentrated but soft, with sandy tannins that evolve nicely. A true classic from the Andes region.
