Tasting Notes:

Plummy and ripe, with a hint of tobacco and spice. The mouthfeel is ample, with mouth-coating tannins and a long and pleasant finish. Ideally served at 60-65ºF. This wine is a favorite with traditional Chilean cuisine featuring onions, sweet peppers and raisins. It also pairs extremely well with savory dishes containing soy sauce and including pork, duck or vegetables. Cheeses with a hint of sweetness such as Gruyere or Chanco.

Winemaker Notes:

The grapes for this wine come from loamy, alluvial, well-drained soils around the Cachapoal River, which sits within the greater Rapel Valley. Upon arrival at the winery, all grapes were destemmed, table sorted and crushed to stainless steel tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Fermentation occurred quickly; temperatures reached peaks of 90ºF. The wine was then left to macerate for an additional 7 days, for added structure and longevity. The resulting wine underwent malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels, of which 20% were new, and it was left to age for 10 months. The wine was finally assembled, filtered and bottled. 1,400 cases were produced.
