Our Cordillera Chardonnay has its origin in the Limarí Valley, which has a cool climate typical of the Chilean coast.
This bright valley with its chalky soils, characterized by being deep clayey loam and alluvial terrain, as well as its maritime influence, has excellent conditions for growing the Chardonnay variety. After a light pressing, we ferment this wine in French oak barrels, achieving a wine with marked personality, freshness, and elegance.

Fresh, fruity aroma dominated by peach, white plum, and grapefruit notes, with touches of toasted hazelnut. Mineral on the palate, with plenty of volume, elegant acidity and lasting rich fruity aromas, ending with a fresh, pleasant aftertaste.

Pairing:

Shrimp, Baked fish

Distance from the coast: 29 kilometers.
The vineyard’s location 29 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean means a maritime influence can be felt through the sea breeze that comes in every day, making the area very cool.

Soil
The soil is part of an alluvial terrace of the Limarí River. It is a matrix with a clay loam texture, including different sized gravels as well as clay and sand. It has high levels of calcium carbonate, as well as several types of salts, due to the lack of precipitation.

Climate
Temperate to warm climate with very cold nights.

Carmenere

Cachapoal Valley, Peumo

  • Story
  • Tasting Note
  • Terroir
  • Awards

Cordillera Carménère has its origin in the famous Terroir of Peumo in the Cachapoal Valley.
The valley is characterized by having a sub-humid Mediterranean climate, and its very warm days and very cold nights influenced by the Cachapoal River allow for a prolonged ripening period ideal for these vines.

The vineyard is on a foothill, on granite soils of colluvial origin with a clay loam texture and the presence of stones, offering very good drainage and low fertility. This is ideal for controlling vigor and obtaining very limited production of an excellent Carménère.

Very intense color. On the nose there is a wonderfully strong expression of the character of the Carménère variety (fruits of the forest, eucalyptus, and leather), with toasted notes (bay and clove), licorice, and black pepper. Very ample palate with rounded tannins. To finish, aromas of toasted bread and spices ending in a long aftertaste.

Pairing:

Grilled meats, Roast meats

Distance from the coast: 67 kilometers.

Soil
Deep soils of alluvial origin, with a clay loam texture. The clay has a strong tendency to retain water, delivering it to the plants very gradually. As a result, plant vigor is controlled and the grapes ripen well.

Climate
Classed as a sub-humid Mediterranean climate, according to its bioclimatic indices. Very warm days and cold nights due to the influence of the Cachapoal River allow a long ripening period ideal for Carménère.

  • Awards

Every morning in the Maule Valley, the sun rises over the Andes beginning a ritual that unites land and vine.

These rainfed vineyards within the coastal range hold some of the oldest Carignan vines in the world, many of them dating back more than 80 years. This variety, rescued from oblivion, is undoubtedly one of Chile’s great treasures.

Highly intense, opaque ruby color. Floral and fruity aroma with underlying toasted notes from the barrel aging. Broad on the palate, with excellent texture. The notes of the aroma are complemented with hints of bay and mint.

Pairing:

Paella, Soup, Grilled meats

Distance from the coast: 63 km and 56 km

Soil
The vineyard lies on soils that are granite in origin with a transition from gravel to red clay, 2.9% organic material, and low N, P, K levels (13, 14, 125). This low fertility is ideal for Carignan, which has a natural tendency to be very vigorous. The pH is acid, with a value of 4.53. The first 70 centimeters of the soil have a sandy loam texture, while from 70 centimeters to 180 centimeters the texture is clay loam.
The soil is deep, with good drainage for this rainfed area.

Climate
Warm, arid climate with well-defined seasons and also under rainfed conditions. The nights are very cold, providing the necessary temperature fluctuation for the grapes to develop well.
The proximity of the coastal range shapes the local climate. The vines withstand the temperatures well and the dryness of the inland climate provides them with good conditions.
