  1. White Wine, Chardonnay Medalla Real 2014, Santa Rita, Chile Sale

    White Wine, Chardonnay Medalla Real 2014, Santa Rita, Chile

    Region: Leyda Valley The vineyards were planted in 1998 on soils with a granitic-clay texture atop the bedrock 60–80 cm below. The proximity of the Pacific Ocean produces a strong maritime influence with morning fog and sea breezes that moderate the daily high temperatures. It also prevents night time lows from dropping as abruptly as they do in the Central Valley. Vineyard management includes removing unwanted shoots early in the season and leaf pulling at the bunch level just after flowering to keep the canopy well illuminated canopy and encourage good ripening and flavor development. Total yield is 4,500 kg/hectare. The grapes are crushed prior to pressing, and the juice is cold decanted for 12 hours and then racked of the coarse lees for a must with a high level of turbidity. The must is innoculated with selected yeasts and immediately transferred to oak barrels to ferment. Fermentation temperature is only controlled by the room temperature and can reach a high of 20 C. Once the fermentation is complete, the wine remains in the barrels for 8 months with weekly battonage (lees stirring), twice a week at first and later just once later on. Deep, greenish-yellow in color. Intense bouquet that combines mineral notes with light citrus, nectarines, nuts, and a touch of oak. The palate stands out for its refreshing acidity that balances nicely with the wine’s fruitiness, good weight, silky texture, and length. Learn More

  2. Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2013, Santa Rita, Chile Sale

    Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva 2013, Santa Rita, Chile

    Region: Maipo Valley Sub- humid Mediterranean climate, with an annual average rainfall of 400 mm, concentrated in winter. Warm and dry summers, with great thermal oscillation between day and night. In this strip of land, located at the foothills of the Andes, night temperatures tend to be lower because of cold air that flows down from the mountains, causing a daily thermal oscillation that can exceed 20°C. The rocky subsoil ensures good drainage of rainwater and stimulates good root development Our estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Alto Jahuel, located in Chile’s famous Maipo Valley, one of the finest wine producing regions in the world.Fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures between 25° and 28°C with high color extraction at the beginning of the this process. This was followed by fermentation at a lower temperature so as to ensure a different extraction of the skin components. A long post maceration at low temperatures assured an adequate extraction for the ageing of the wine. The result is an expressive ruby red colour wine. Its aromas recall ripe, black fruit gracefully combined with vanilla, tobacco and cloves. Medium bodied wine, balanced and pleasant persistent wine. Learn More

  3. Red Wine, Merlot Reserva 2012, Santa Rita, Chile

    Red Wine, Merlot Reserva 2012, Santa Rita, Chile

    Region: 85% maipo valley - 15% casablanca valley Sub-humid Mediterranean climate. Rains are mainly concentrated in winter with an average rainfall of 500 mm/year. Spring is cool and dry while summers are warm and dry with maximum temperatures frequently above 30°C. The mountain influence results in a broad thermal oscillation of over 15°C between day and night as well as a gradual decrease in temperatures towards the end of summer, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly, maintain their fruit concentration and achieve proper tannin ripening. Alluvial soil with an upper franc layer 80 -100 cm. deep. A loamy subsoil ensures adequate rain water drainage and allows deep growth of the radicular system The crushed grapes underwent a 7-10 day cold soak prior to vinification with selected yeasts. Fermenation began at 28-30 C and was later lowered to 25 C. Constant pumpovers and variable fermentaiton times ensure good and controlled tannin extraction. Post-fermentation maceration was conducted as determined by tastings. Intense, ruby-red in color with a bouquet dominated by fresh ripe fruits such as berries and spicy notes associated with components in the oak barrels. Medium- bodied, very silky, and well-balanced with good acidity that lends a fresh sensation. Long and pleasing on the finish. Learn More
  4. Red Wine, Merlot Medalla Real 2014, Santa Rita, Chile Sale

    Red Wine, Merlot Medalla Real 2014, Santa Rita, Chile

    Region: Leyda Valley All of the clones are vertically trellised and double-curtain cordon trained on shallow gravel-clay soil with good drainage. Once the growing season begins, shoots are thinned to achieve appropriate spacing between the remaining shoots and guarantee the appropriate luminosity for the bunches without exposing them to excess sunshine. Irrigation is managed to stop growth during veraison and achieve good nutrition for the clusters and allow the berries to develop varietal character. Hydric control is continued after veraison is completed, but never allowed to reach severe stress in order to always maintain the fruitiness and fresh- ness of the variety. Each clone is treated separately and only blended after vinification is completed. The harvest extends through late March and into mid-April, depending on the clone and maturation level in order to obtain different varietal compounds. Once picked, the grapes are quickly transported to the winery for processing. They are destemmed, crushed, and pressed, except for a few lots that undergo an 18-hour pre-fermentation cold soak in the presses at 10oC (50oF) to prevent any type of- oxidation or phenolic extraction. The free run and press juices are separated by tasting to select only the fraction that best represents the fresh and fruity characte- ristics and texture, with no type of phenolic extraction or oxidation whatsoever. The juice obtained is decanted for 10 days, during which it takes its varietal character from the solid parts, which lend complexity to the finished wine. The must is fermented at low temperatures to retain all of its fruitiness, and the finished wine is conserved on its lees for four months to develop mouthfeel and complexity. It is later clarified and cold stabilized before bottling. Brilliant light greenish-yellow in color. The great fruit expression shines the spotlight on grapefruit and lemon blossom citrus notes combined with the classic gooseberry and the distinctly mineral finish that is characteristic of the Leyda Valley. Elegant and compact, this is a tremendously balanced wine with vibrant acidity that spreads over the palate as it develops its fruity components and delivers its long fruit-driven finish. Learn More

  6. White Wine, 120 Chardonnay 2016, Santa Rita, Chile Sale

    White Wine, 120 Chardonnay 2016, Santa Rita, Chile

    Region Central Valley A sub-humid climate with a rainy winter and an extending cold spring. Summer months are usually dry with maximum temperatures over 30º C. In February, temperatures begin to decrease and the Andes influence produces a maximum thermal oscillation. Soils are located at the piedmont of the Andes Mountain range, it is loamy or clay loam with good drainage. The vineyards were planted in 1998 on soils with a granitic-clay texture atop the bedrock 60–80 cm (23.5–31.5 in) below. In our 120 Chardonnay we combine grapes from different vineyards from the central zone in order to attain a fruity, elegant wine, in the coastal zone with a stronger Pacific Ocean influence, we attain freshness and citric combinations, the pre-Andean area brings tropical fruits and sweetness providing an amber-colored wine with greenish overtones, well-balanced, refreshing and round. Grapes are harvested and full clusters are directly de-stemmed and crushed or pressed, both techniques are used in different proportions, both are exposed to cold to reduce temperatures to 10°C, under these conditions, different qualities of free-run juice are pressed separately which will later be used in different styles and wine categories. Free-run juices are statically decanted for 12 to 36 hours and later, the clear juice is racked and inoculated to ferment at temperatures between 13 and 16 °C. At the final combination, wood is used for depth and aromatic complexity. Once fermentation has concluded they are separated from lees and sulfites for further mixture. Sparkling yellow-green in color. An intense bouquet that combines mineral notes with light citrus and nectarines. The taste stands out because of its refreshing acidity, which pleasantly balances the fruity nature of the wine, good density, silky texture and long-lasting aftertaste Learn More
