MAULE VALLEYThe vineyard is 64 years old, with balanced vines and low yield. The soils are loamy clay, typical of the Coastal Range. In terms of climate, the summers are very hot, but with cool temperatures during the night.
In the WineryThe grape harvest was the result of higher temperatures than the previous year, which meant a long, dry season, due to the lack of rainfall. This allowed the grapes to ripen fully, which was highly beneficial for the grapes from the Maule. The wines are remarkable for the intensity and generosity of their aromas and flavours, with much pleasanter acidities.
