Tasting Notes:
Deep yellow color. The nose is complex and fresh, with aromas of stone fruit, honey and orange peel along with subtle citrus notes that give way to a lush yet refreshing palate with very good volume and complexity.


Vineyards:
From our Fundo San Carlos vineyard, near Cunaco in the Colchagua Valley. The blocks were planted more than 100 years ago. Deep sandy-clay alluvial soil that is extremely porous and able to deliver water throughout the year, which is highly important for producing top-end Malbec. The vineyard is planted to a density of 2900 plants/hectare in a low vertical shoot position and cane- or double guyot-pruned. Shoots were debudded in spring and early summer, and manual leaf-pulling was performed in early March increase the exposure of the grapes.


Vinification process:
The grapes were pressed directly and the must was decanted for 48 hours before fermentation, which was carried out in stainless steel tanks with yeasts specially selected for this kind of wine. After fermentation, the wine was aged in used oak barrels, before being stabilized, filtered and bottled.
