Vilification The grapes were harvested by hand at the end of April. In order to extract color and aromas the must underwent skin contact at low temperatures prior to alcoholic fermentation. The must is then fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging between 26° to 28°C during a seven-day period. The wine is then left to macerate for five additional days in order to extract tannins. The wine is then placed in oak barrels only for eight months to keep the balance of fruit and oak Then is bottled without filtering to maintain it is extraordinary fruits qualities.
The grapes come from our estate vineyards in Villa Alegre, 285 km south of Santiago in the Maule Valley. The soils are derived from volcanic ash and consist of sandy to sandy-loam earth. The vineyards are flat and receive an excellent exposure to sunlight. The yields are carefully controlled so as to produce concentrated and elegant wines.
