Single vineyard (Quebrada del Pulgar), surrounded by hills but just 11km from the coast. Warm days but harsh nights (diurnal range of 25oC). High plantation density of 9,800 plants per hectare (unique in Chile). Vineyard is managed with high level of water stress to promote smaller, more concentrated berries. The ‘Vaguda Costera’ (Pacific morning mist) protects the vines from early morning heat and the eastern orientation further protects them from the extremes of afternoon heat. Delicate pneumatic pressing followed by fermentation in 50% stainless steel / 50% concrete eggs. Minimal stabilization and filtration.
