Tasting note

Aromas of red fruits, cedar and boldo herbs. It’s fresh and fruity in mouth with cherry flavors and a touch of pepper and rosemary. Silky with velvety tannins and good volume.

The grapes are handpicked with a double selection before macerating in open stainless steel tanks with native yeasts. The skins remain after fermentation to give structure and soften its finish. The best blocks from the harvest are then selected and blended before aging in French oak barrels for 12 months.
