Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

Its dark garnet color announces an exuberant nose with hints of eucalyptus, menthol, dark fruits, citrus zests and faded violets. The palate is heady and full-bodied with spicy notes and a finish on tight tannins.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

Located South of Santiago, the Central Valley is Chile's flagship winegrowing region. A combination of several factors, such as the semiarid climate, poor soils, a constant irrigation and a temperature gap between days and nights makes it an ideal region to grow wine.
