Description

As a limited production blend, winemaker Horacio Vicente explores the diversity of the Andean terroir of Alto Aconcagua. This selection of vineyards and varieties allows each Signature Wines wine to be a unique experience.

Blend – Syrah 50%, Mourvedre 45% & Viognier 5%.

This blend is produced with grapes grown at the slopes of Paidahuen (920 m a.s.l.), the hillside vine cultivation offers rocky soil, low fertility and special solar exposure that favour the accumulation and ripening of tannins. Moreover, the cool, night breeze that descends from the Andes Mountains creates an exceptional temperature variation, producing the complexity and elegance that distinguish Aconcagua Valley wines.

Hand-picked, fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel (25ºC) it was macerated for 25 days and then aged in 225-litre French oak barrels for 12 months. After bottling this wine was aged for at least 6 additional months before release.

Elegant and fresh blue berries aromas, floral notes and hints of vanilla. Well balanced with round tannins and some creamy oak notes on the finish.
