  • A perfumed wine with layers of deep red fruit and cassis interwoven with notes of graphite, mint and ripe guava, concentrated and opulent. A showstopper of a wine! An exceptional wine revealing expressive aromatic layers, balanced concentration, and wonderful complexity. Deep red fruits and blackberries are underpinned by earthy nuances, subtle spice, and mineral notes with a touch of tobacco. The structured palate shows the depth of flavour and integrated tannins to an everlasting finish.

The grapes were manually selected; first by cluster, then by berry to ensure only the ripe, healthy fruit was vinified. Gravity then transferred the grapes into small stainless steel tanks of 10,000 litres for fermentation with selected yeasts. The wine was made without any additions, and following fermentation, it was transferred to French oak barrels, where it spent 16 months. It received a further 18 months of ageing in the bottle before release.

Winery

The grapes for this wine were carefully selected from small plots. The Cabernet Sauvignon comes from estate vineyards planted in the early 1990s in Pirque and Los Morros in Alto Maipo. The Pirque vineyard contains alluvial soils with medium composition and a high level of stone content, whereas Los Morros consists of soils of colluvial-alluvial origin. Both soil types have medium to low fertility, good depth of 1.5 to 2 meters, and good drainage, which are ideal conditions to produce wines of character. The Carmenare grapes come from an estate vineyard in the Colchagua Valley planted in the mid-1980s. The clay loam soil textures are dominant and ideal for this variety as they retain soil moisture, ensuring optimum and prolonged ripening. The Carignan grapes come from a rain-fed vineyard planted in 1958 in the Maule Valley. It contains soils with clay texture, high quartz content, granitic origin subsoil, and good drainage.
