Region

Wines of Chile continue the legacy of Spanish wine culture in the ‘New World’. The rugged and wild landscapes, with the currents of the Pacific to one side and the Andean slopes to the other, allow excellent climatic conditions for the cultivation of varieties brought from the Old World: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay which prosper with indigenous grapes like Carmenere.

Tasting Notes

Rich purple in colour, this wine has aromas of plum, while flavours of dark red fruit and damson linger on the palate, finishing with a touch of spice.

Food Pairing

A perfect accompaniment to beef, game (deer or venison), rice, pork and lamb dishes.

Technical Information

Grapes are hand picked and transported to the winery in small baskets in order to preserve the bunches whole and undamaged. Then the grapes are destemmed and proceed to cold maceration (for 2-3 days at very low temperatures) to express the maximum the extraction of fruit aromas and soft tannins. After fermentation, a post-fermentation maceration is carried out to obtain a mature, complex and elegant wine with a soft, round palate.
