Region: Colchagua Valley, Chile
Tasting notes: This deep red wine has a powerful and clear varietal nose with a hint of pepper balanced with fine barrel aromas (vanilla, smoke and chocolate). In the mouth it is soft, full-bodied and round. Very good with spicy foods.
Vineyard notes: The grapes come from the San José de Puquillay farm, from vines which yield 6,000 kg per hectare in an area with considerable temperature changes between day and night.
Winemaking report: The grapes were fermented at 25ºC to preserve the characteristic Carmenère aromas, and with three days of post-fermentation maceration.
