Ruby red color with purple reflections when young. Impressions of black cherries, blackberries, wild strawberries and fine herbs. After some maturing time, secondary flavors such as cocoa and green pepper also emerge. Just like Merlot, it has a nice round and friendly character, but with more herbs and a typical fine accompanying bitters. Medium body and smooth final.
Stew of red meat with a spicy character, grilled or fried red meat, lamb on the grill and pork chops.
Temperate Mediterranean climate, with a strong maritime influence, due to the proximity of the Pacific Ocean and Maipo river. The mist in the early hours of the day assures low temperatures which dissipate later on, opening to higher temperatures, regulated by the coastal breezes in the afternoon.
Mainly granite with a top layer of clay and loam at the foot of the mountains.
Carmenere 85% and Cabernet Franc 15%. Grapes are picked by hand in mid-March. The fermentation is started with selected native yeasts in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature. (26-28°) The wine then partly rests in a blend of French and American wooden barrels (40-50%) and stainless steel tanks (50-60%) for 6 months. The wine is then reassembled and bottled.
