  • Variety
    100% Carmenre
  • Origin
    This wine is obtained from Carmennre grapes grown in San Pedro´s vineyards located in the Maule Valley (Pencahue, VII region). This area is known for its hot climate and a hilly rocky terrain, what produces ideal conditions for the development and maturation of Carmenre.
  • Harvest
    Grapes are hand-harvested in 20-kg boxes early in the morning to avoid high temperatures. Grapes are harvested with 24-25º brix. The vineyard yield is 6-8 tons per hectare.
  • Vinification
    When the grapes reach the cellar, they are kept cold for a pre-fermentative maceration for 2 to 3 days. This pre-fermentative maceration ensures a gentle extraction of colour, taste and aromas from the skin. Then the alcoholic fermentation takes place for 8 to 10 days reaching temperatures lower than 27°C. Pump overs takes place 3 times/day. Once the wine is finished, a post-fermentative maceration is undertaken, which lasts for 1-2 weeks. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels, where it remains for 12 months, 30% of these barrels are new. The wine is clarified with natural egg whites and after a very thick filtration is bottled.
  • Color
    very dark, violet with black notes.
  • Aroma
    intense spices accompanied by soft green pepper, characteristic of this variety. There are toasted, vanilla, and smoke aromas from barrel aging, a very elegant aroma, a divergence from the traditional varieties.
  • Palate
    this is a high-bodied wine, very gentle and rich, combining many flavors. It is highly complex and leaves a velvety, sweet sensation, lots of tannins from the attack to the end, but very sweet. The oak combines well with the variety's spices; it is a long wine, leaving a sensation of maturity.
