||The Isla de Maipo vineyard has alluvial soil with rocks and pebbles. On the other hand, the Coastal Mountain Range vineyard features soil with an abundance of rocks at depht. Both allow for a good rooting depth.
||Once it has been selected and destemmed, the grape is transferred into a a tank for cold maceration and then fermented with native yeast.
||The wine is aged for 14 month in old French oak barrels, with the aim of ensuring that the aromas and tastes from the wood are not transferred to the wine and thus do not mask the characteristics typical of its terroir. Bottling is carried out using lightweight bottles made from recycled material.
