The Central Valley Includes the sub valleys of Cachapoal and Colchagua. It exhibits a semi – arid Mediterranean climate with a winter – only rainfall pattern. During the growing season, we have warm and dry days and pleasantly cool nights as a result of cold breezes coming from the Andes Mountains. The Valley has also a cool influence from the Pacific’s Humboldt Current which lowers temperatures in the coastal areas of the valley. This leads to warm days with ample sunlight and dry conditions, allowing for a slow ripening period.
Our D’Alamel wines have an expressive nose and a pleasant structure. SOIL The soils throughout the Central Valley are from alluvial and colluvial origin with good drainage.
WINEMAKING - Must was fermented by native yeast in stainless steel tanks for 2 weeks, with temperature control between 24º to 28°C. - 10% of the blend was aged in used French oak barrels for 4 months.
