Winemaking Notes

Vinification began with manual selection of bunches and berries. The grapes drop gently from the selection table into the tank and are fermented over 6–10 days. The new wine remains on its skins for a post-fermentation maceration for 10–20 days, is devatted, undergoes malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, and then ages in barrels.

The wine was then aged for 9 months in French oak barrels.

Vineyard Notes

The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m above sea level and extends across the rolling hills along the Cachapoal River on the terraces of the Coastal Mountain Range. The vertically positioned and cordon-pruned vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock. The deep soils have a top layer of clay that enables them to retain moisture and allows the vines to remain active until the harvest in late May. It also helps control plant vigor and growth. The microclimate in the Peumo Vineyard is highly influenced by the Rapel River and Lake. This season was slightly cooler than normal and without the presence of rains during the harvest.
