SOIL

Alluvial soil, stony and deep, over two meters. Good drain and high root exploration.

 

CLIMATE

Chilean Mediterranean climate mix dry summers and cold and rainy winters, which makes it ideal for vine. The cooling influences of the Andes and Pacific Ocean at night with warm and sunny days, result in a growing season with slow ripening and high-quality grapes.

 

HARVEST

During the season, no rain was reported during blossom neither spring frosts. High thermal oscillation, with moderate to low maximum temperatures at the final ripening stage benefited acidity and aromatic expression in wines. Wines depicted more acidity and less alcohol. Wines on the valley showed very good color intensity and stability.
