Description

The grapes for this wine come from our El Puntal field, located in Isla de Maipo, Maipo Valley (Between Cordilleras). The vineyard is planted on one of the alluvial terraces that runs along the north bank of the Maipo River. There, the floors show different textures along with their profiles.

From the surface down, layers of sandy composition with a high content of stones alternate, and others with a sandy-loam texture, without stones. The riverbed allows the entry of fresh winds, both from the mountains and from the sea, which exerts a moderating influence that cools the nights and generates a wide thermal oscillation. These conditions are ideal for producing a cabernet sauvignon of good concentration and rich acidity. The vineyard was planted in 2011 and is driven on trellis.
The Maipo Valley has a temperate Mediterranean climate in all its extension, which is characterized by dry summers and winters with moderate rainfall. During the 2015 season, there is an almost total absence of frost, higher rainfall and higher temperatures than normal, reaching one of the highest thermal sums of recent years.

Both flowering and harvesting will be affected by a cape in excellent sanitary conditions due to the absence of rainfall. Slight increases in yields were observed, with healthy fruit and good quality. The wines of this vintage, especially the traditional Maipo reds, such as cabernet sauvignon, have remarkable varietal expressions, great aromatic intensity, and well-structured tannins.
