Description

A deep inky purple colour in the glass. An appealing nose of blackberry, confectionery, kalamata olives and white pepper, and well integrated between with fine-grained tannins and ripe clean fruit. This wine shows elegance and balance providing a soft bouquet with vivid flavours.

Coming from the Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley, sub appellations of Lolol, Pumanque, Marchigue and Apalta, the geographic differences of these sub appellations add complexity and freshness to the final blend. The grapes were carefully selected before crushing. A period of cold maceration at 4º-5ºC took place for 7 days bringing retention of primary aromas and intense colour. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks at 25ºC with selected yeasts. Malolactic Fermentation took place naturally. 80% of the wine was aged in French and American oak barrels for 9 months. After bottling, the wine was aged for an additional 2 months before release.

Food Matching: This wine goes perfectly with poultry and game meats, as well as with cheeses, casseroles, stews and pasta.
