Winemaker's Notes:

The Maquis Rosé is made from 100% dry farmed Malbec grown in the Colchagua Valley. The temperate climate of the growing season enhances the fresh fruit aromas and gives the wine a lively acidity accompanied by a rich mouthfeel. Some aging in French oak adds complexity and a creamy texture on the pallet making this wine an easy accompaniment to almost any dish.

About Maquis:

The Hurtado family has owned the Vina Maquis vineyard for more than a century, but it wasn't until ten years ago that the family decided to make their own wine out of the terrific grapes in their own backyard. They built a gorgeous, state-of-the-art gravity flow winery and set out to make a "Super Chilean" blend using the vineyard's best red grapes.

Located in Valle de Colchagua, Vina Maquis's terroir is deeply influenced by its geographic position, as it is surrounded by the Tinguiririca River and the Chimbarongo Creek—two large waterways that once brought alluvial sediments from the Andes. Today, they act as pathways for cool coastal breezes that help moderate the warm Colchagua summers, contributing to the intensity and fruitiness of the wines.
