Winemaker's Notes:

The Bio Bio Valley, situated 500 km south of Santiago and 50 km. from the coast, is the southernmost wine producing region in Chile. The alluvial and volcanic stones, rocks, clay and sand in the soil gradually stress the vines, making it very difficult for them to find nutrients. The temperate Mediterranean climate of the valley, the influence of the sea and the 1200 mm of rain per year, provide perfect conditions of cold and heat, which enable the grapes to mature slowly, thus obtaining intense aromas.

Delicate olive green colour. Its aroma is elegant and complex with expressive varietal notes, mixed with spicy aromas, recently cut grass, mineral touches and tropical fruit such as passion fruit, a touch of mango and pink grapefruit. Attractive, refreshing, deep and has a crunchy finish.
