ORGANIC WINE : Syrah 35% - Carmenere 25% - Cabernet Franc 20% - Cabernet 15% - Petit Verdot 5%
All grapes come from our estate at Hacienda Araucano at Lolol. Planted with no rootstock, the vines which we cultivate, are among the last vines of the world not to have known Phylloxera.
Deep and brillant red colour with glints of crimson.
The nose is fresh and elegant with hints of black fruit jam and tobacco.
It is a wine that reveals itself in stages, bringing to light the complexity of this blend, with background hints of leather, white pepper and liquorice.
The overall effect is rounded off by aromatic power, displaying the elegance of the Lolol Valley.
Due to the higher than usual rainfall and long ripening periods, the 2013 vintage was harvested one to two weeks later than in a normal year.
After a very dry winter due to the natural phenomenon of La Niña, spring was influenced by its corollary, El Niño. The latter had the effect of bringing rain during the vines' growth period, an occurrence rarely seen in Chile! This complexity was confirmed at the end of fermentation.
This is a well-rounded wine that can be enjoyed now or in up to six years time, accompanied by substantial dishes, game in wine sauce or barbecued red meat.
