Deep ruby red in color with violet tones, good aromatic expression, evokes red berries and herbs that deliver great freshness and expression. Rounded and soft tannins and a clean aftertaste, with good persistence and rich acidity.
The Central Valley is formed between the Coastal and Andes Mountain Ranges, and the Maule thus features three distinct climatic areas: the Pacific region lies in the west toward the Coastal Mountains and has a maritime climate, the inter-mountain valley floor has a Mediterranean climate and fairly deep fertile soils, and the Andean foothills are marked by rocky, well-drained soils and a climate that is influenced by the cooling effect of the mountains that rise to the east.
The entire region enjoys a hot, dry summer and a fairly long growing season. These climatic variations create a diversity of growing conditions that support a wide range of grape varieties and wine styles.
The grapes were harvested during end of March and early April and transported to the winery in plastic bins, were they were gently crushed and deposited in stainless steel tanks and chilled to 10°C (50°F) for 3 to 4 days to enhance color and aromas. Alcoholic fermentation was carried out at 13º to 16ºC (55º–61ºF) for 12 to 15 days. Post-fermentation maceration was also carried out for 2 to 5 days. Once the final blend was obtained, the wine was cold decanted and lightly filtered before bottling.
An ideal accompaniment to white meat, pasta and soft fish.
