Description

Details

This wine is a blend of two different terroirs, both in the Alto Cachapoal D. O. This is a cold, high altitude area of the Andes mountain range, with a glacial climate, which gives the grapes a natural high acidity, and less sun exposure. The first vineyard has a coluvial soil, which is sandy clay, which is very deep and full of volcanic rocks and pebbles, and allows for very deep root development. The second vineyard is the Grillos Cantores vineyard, which has soil made up of alluvial mix of gravel with limestone, and again allows for very deep root development.
They press whole bunches of grapes, giving a delicate wine with emphasis on fruit purity and freshness. Fermentation was slow at relatively cool temperatures. No malolactic fermentation took place but the wine spent 12 months on the fine lees to add further structure and complexity.

Tasting Notes: Pale yellow coloured, with a nose of hints of white peach, peah and white flower blossom. A subtle note of butter on the palate with freshness and brightness, balance and complexity. A persistent and mineral finish.
