(1 customer review)


Size: 750 ml

Grape Variety:

100% Malbec

Tasting Notes:

The wine is deep ruby-red, tinged with purple at the rim. The nose delivers intense ripe fruit, such as cranberry, blackberry, and black plum mingled with well-defined notes of nutmeg, toast and dulce de leche, derived from the French oak. The palate is balanced and broad, with smooth tannins and a medium body. The finish is long and in line with the nose.

The vineyards are located in our Apalta and El Arcángel del Marchigüe Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. Here, soils are derived from granite in different degrees of decomposition, there are a variation of slopes, effective rooting depths, organic matter, and types of geological formations, which make these two terroirs very interesting.
Apalta is characterized by its colluvial and alluvial inuences with varying depths and textures in the highest zones and more homogenous zones in the lower sectors due to the influence of the Tinguiririca River. Its Mediterranean climate gives us summers with cold nights and hot days, which helps the fruit to ripen slowly.
Marchigüe presents shallower soils with moderate slopes, primarily of colluvial origin and with angular stones at shallow depths. The climate is more severe than in Apalta and presents more wind and solar radiation as well as lower precipitation due to it being located so close to the Coastal Mountains.
