How it's made

This region has a moderate humid Mediterranean climate with warm days and cool nights prolonging the growing season. Average rainfall is among the highest of all the Chilean wine valleys. With strong winds and broader extremes, it makes for challenging conditions that those of Chile's more northerly regions. Vine growing here requires more patience, skill and nerve than in the other valleys. The Pinot Noir grows on red clay soil here. The pressing is at low temperature to extract color and aromas but no harsh tannins. The fermentation is relatively cool with gentle pump overs. After fermentation is finished, 10% of the blend is aged for six months in French oak to give more complexity to the wine.

Tasting Notes

Light ruby red in color with aromas of fresh strawberries accompanied by subtle notes of spices and a touch of minerality. The medium bodied palate is elegant, delicate and fresh with juicy sour cherry flavors balanced with ripe tannins and a nice long finish.
