climate

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.

soil

Piedmont of the Cordillera de la Costa, loam to sandy loam, granite source.

vinification

Grapes are handpicked, and meticulously reselected on the sorting table. Cold maceration takes 8 days in stainless steel tanks followed by the alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts. After fermentation, the wine stays in skincontact for about 6 to 8 days. 60% of the blend ages in French and American oak during a period of 10 to 12 months, depending of the integration and evolution of the tannins.
