The grapes come from Montes’ vineyards in Apalta and Marchigüe. The sites are irrigated via a ‘Sustainable Dry Farmed’ system which allows for precise and minimal irrigating, reducing their water footprint by 65%. In Apalta, vines are planted on 45° slopes, providing good exposure for ripeness. Cool ocean breezes and low night-time temperatures moderate this warm area, ensuring the grapes ripen steadily and preserving good levels of natural acidity. Marchigüe is cooler and lies in the rain shadow of the Coastal Range, reducing the threat of fungal disease and resulting in consistently healthy harvests. All grapes were hand harvested.The grapes were cold soaked at 10°C for five days to extract aroma and colour. The grapes were then fermented in stainless steel tanks for 12 days and kept on their skins to give structure and colour. After malolactic fermentation, 55% of the final blend was aged in French oak barrels (1st, 2nd, and 3rd use) for 12 months to add complexity and roundness to the wine.

Tasting Note

This wine is deep ruby red in colour, with violet hues. There are intense notes of ripe red and black fruits, cherries in syrup, blackcurrants and a stewed fruit character. Notes of dairy, a hint of nutmeg, rich toast and a touch of tobacco intermingle with its fruity character. The palate is well-balanced with round tannins, good structure and a long, elegant finish.
