ORIGIN
This wine was made entirely from grapes of our own vineyard located in the coastal area of the Limarí Valley in the north of Chile.

VINEYARD
The vines are planted in the oldest alluvial terrace of the Limarí river, the soil profile is a mix a gravels of different sizes, clay and sand with high concentrations of active calcium carbonates (limestone) and different type of salts, due to the very little amount of rainfall per year (70 – 100 mm) in the area. This geological condition makes this place unique in Chile in terms of the soil formation and composition.

CLIMATE
The vineyards are planted 30 kms from the Pacific Ocean, which has a great influence on the temperatures of the area due to the strong breezes that every day get into the continent, cooling the area and making it very suitable for grape growing, plus a spectacular phitosanitary conditions of the grape because of the absence of rain during the harvest season, makes this place a paradise for vines and good quality grape.

PRODUCTION
From the pruning to the harvest, every single work done in the vineyard has gone under the careful supervision of the viticulture and winemaking team in order to produce the best quality of fruit possible.
The fruit was handpicked and them placed in 20kg cases so there is no breakage of the grapes, the picking started first week of March, at its optimal phenolic and aromatic maturity, then underwent through a very careful selection of bunches. The fermentation was done in stainless steel tanks at very low temperature (11°-13°C) in order to keep all the flavours, freshness and aromas of the fruit in the wine.

AGEING
Stainless steel tank.

TASTING NOTES
This wine has a pale yellow colour with green hints, very clean and brilliant. In the nose is very intense, complex and elegant with citric notes, passion fruit and green aromas. In the palate has a great volume, crispy with high acidity which gives freshness and life to the wine. Very long, fresh and fruity finish.
