Notes about product

Vineyards located in the area of Chepica, Colchagua Valley, where the warm climate,long summer days and generous insulation during the morning contribute to the ripening of the grapes.

The grapes were crushed and fermented in stainless steel tanks for 7 days, followed by a 3-day post-fermentation maceration. Part of the wine was aged in oak barrels for 4–6 months to obtain greater complexity in the final blend.

Tasting notes

A smooth and velvety wine with ripe tannins. Well balanced with pleasing, moderate acidity. Pair with pastas, vegetable casseroles, cheeses, and Chilean food.
