The Single Vineyard wines are sourced from small estates with a unique identity and sense of origin, and are aged in old French oak. The vines were planted in 1992. Ungrafted, with a yield of 5,000 vines per hectare. Alluvial terraces with deposits from the Maipo River, which transported volcanic rock from the Andes Mountains towards the valley. A heterogeneous soil profile, typical of alluvial terraces with an abundance of pebbles from volcanic rock. On average the rock appears at a depth of 1.4m. The greater the depth, the more sand & less clay there is. Mild Mediterranean climate. 2015 started with very little rain which provided excellent conditions. Hotter temps in Feb. and March were beneficial for the Carmenere. AGING: 2 years in oak foudres.
