Vineyard: The grapes come from the Maule Valley one of the oldest grape growing regions

in Chile. Grown in medium fertility loamy clay soils that help retain good levels of water and

perfectly suit Merlot, allowing vines to grow with good yields and achieve perfect ripeness.

Winemaking Note: After harvest the grapes were crushed, leaving approximately 20% of

the grapes whole; they were then subjected to pre-fermentation maceration for three days

at low temperatures to extract more aromas. Fermentation took place over fi fteen days

with selected yeasts; gentle pump-overs were carried out each day to extract the colour

and structure of the wine. The fermentation temperature was regulated at between 25°

and 26° C to preserve the freshness of the fruit. The wine was kept in stainless steel tanks

and 25% aged in fourth and fi fth-use barrels for six months, until bottling.
