Description

Vineyard Information

Location: Valle Central, Chile (Central Valley – approximately 350 km south of Santiago between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes)

Climate: Mediterranean climate with warm days and cool nights. This diurnal temperature variation allows the grapes to fully ripen whilst still preserving the natural acidity of the grapes in the cool of the night.

Soil: Variety of soils, predominantly alluvial and loamy with gravel subsoil which are favourable for optimum grape growing.

 

Winemaking Details

Grape Variety:  100% Viognier

Fermentation: The grapes are handpicked at their optimum ripeness and destemmed, crushed and transferred to the pneumatic press. Cool fermentation (15-17ºC) in stainless steel tanks lasts approximately 3 weeks and preserves subtle aromatics and freshness.

Maturation: The wine spends 2 months on the lees, which imparts complexity and texture on the palate.
