Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes were picked in selected lots, coming from three areas in Colchagua Valley: Los Lingues, Apalta and Lolol. The vineyards are carefully pruned, with stringent canopy management and a green harvest. At optimum ripeness, the grapes are hand-picked and brought to the cellar for sorting.

Intense ruby red color, the aroma is all about ripe black cherry, dried herbs, tobacco and dark coffee flavors. Plenty of freshness, the palate is all about red berries with a welcome note of elegant and fine tannins and a long and balanced finish. The wine can be cellared for up to five years.

About Koyle:

Koyle corresponds to the sixth generation of a long wine making tradition of the Undurraga family in Chile, started by Mr. Francisco Undurraga Vicuña in 1885.

Koyle vineyards were created in the year 2006, when Alfonso Undurraga Mackenna, together with his sons Alfonso, Max and Cristóbal, began searching for a terroir to develop a high quality red wines project.

After travelling through and analyzing different valleys and sectors of Chile, a property of approximately 1.100 hectares was acquired on the zone of Los Lingues, Alto Colchagua, on a buttress of the Los Andes mountain range. The climatic and soil characteristics of this property are key factors in obtaining an optimum terroir for making great quality wines.
