Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The grapes were handpicked from our estate vineyards in Alto Maipo. These vineyards are planted over deep loam soils over alluvial terraces and are managed to obtain quality and concentration.
Production Notes
The grapes were strictly selected before crushing. The crushed grapes were cold macerated for a period of 10 days at 4º-5ºC prior fermentation. This ensures maximum retention of primary fruit aromas and stabilize colour. Alcoholic Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 26-27º. A gentle extraction programme ensures elegance and intensity. The total maceration period was of 28 days. After fermentation the wine was transferred into new French oak barrels for maturation and finally blended in the spring after malolactic fermentation. The wine remained in oak barrels for 15 months. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in barrels. The wine is finally coarse filtered and it is further aged for additional 12 months in the bottle prior to its release.
Winemaker Notes
This wine has an intense inky purple color with fragrant aromas of black cherries, ripe plums and violets, complemented by complex hints of chocolate, cappuccino, earthy spices and aniseed. Our GRVA PS has great structure and concentration, this wine has full body and long mouthcoating ripe tannins. This wine has a great chaarcter that will age very well until 2015 or more.
