About this winery

With over 60 years of professional experience, Santa Ema are pioneers in the Maipo Valley where they are always searching for the best expressions of terroir, from the mountains to the coast.

Notes about product

The 2018 harvest began a little later than normal due to a cold and rainy spring followed by a temperate summer. High temperatures in March and April allowed the fruit to finish ripening and also helped compensate for the late start on the harvest, which ended in early May. The quality was very good, and despite yields that were higher than expected, the wines have good aromatic intensity and acidity, desirable volume, character and freshness.

Winemaking notes

The grapes for this wine were cold macerated (10 hours at 50ºF / 10ºC) and then pressed. The must was clarified and fermented in stainless steel tanks at 57ºF (14ºC) over the course of 20 days. The finished wine was fined, filtered, and bottled early to conserve all of its aromas, freshness, and fruity expression.

Tasting notes

Intense aromas of roses and white flowers accompanied by notes of sweet fruits such as apricots and peaches. A young and fresh wine with balanced acidity and a pleasing finish. Enjoy with appetizers and mild cheeses, Asian dishes, fresh fruits, desserts, or on its own.
