Grafted onto 120 year old rootstocks in the Piedra Lisa vineyard back in 2010, these Grenache vines get the best of both worlds, fruit produced on new shoots with deep root structures, essential to survive in the dry interior of Itata Valley.
Grapes are hand-harvested, carefully sorted and fermented, before going into French oak barrels for 23 months.
This is a wine of seriously impressive depth, complexity and overriding elegance, deep brick-red in colour with violet reflections. The nose is packed with sweet black fruit, herbal and floral aromas, morello cherries mixed with a sweet perfume of violets, lavender and thyme. Full and opulent in texture but silky smooth, soft leathery tannins and a finely balanced acidity allowing the fruit to glide through to a clean, minerally finish, layered with savoury, earthy and subtle spice notes.
Chilean Grenache, who would’ve thought — this is so, so good.
