Kuyen, which means "moon" in the Chilean native language
Mapuche, is made by Espinoza and his wife Marina on their small
estate in the Maipo Valley. It is a wine made to honor "the ancient
traditions and cosmic vision of the people of the earth." This is a
49% Syrah, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Carmenere blend made
with grapes from the Maipo Valley. Kuyen's grapes are biodynamically
grown, which Espinoza believes gives his fruit a superior
expression of terroir.
The Kuyen blend is aged in French oak barrels, then bottled and
aged an additional six months in the cellar prior to release. This
vintage shows deep color with intense aromas of dark fruit, spice
and minerals. The palate has good texture with volume, body and
a long finish.
