90pts - James Suckling

Concentrated and dark red violet. The nose is pleasant and elegant, starting with black fruits such as blueberries and blackberries followed by attractive oak and tobacco notes together with hints of ink. The palate is powerful; with firm, meaty and mature tannins. The balanced and velvety sensation in the mouth is very persistent and combines nicely with the refreshing acidity.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Especially good weather during this maturation season in the Maule valley. The rain in February added special complexity in the maturation of the grapes in this southern valley, always known for its dryness during the summer. Elimination of shoots during spring, removal of interior leaves after set and two selections of the best grape clusters, one during veraison and the other before harvest. The grapes were handpicked in 17 kg trays.
Production Notes
The grapes were hand-picked using small 17 kg trays and were not crushed on reception to the winery; the clusters were only de-stemmed. The whole berries had four to five days of cold maceration at 14°C prior to fermentation and 15 days of maceration at 25ºC after fermentation. Selected and native wild yeasts were used during the fermentation, which took place in small 1,000 L Tbins. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation took place in the Tbins.
