It comes from El Ensueño, located in the cold western sector of the Casablanca Valley. One of the oldest vineyards in Casablanca, age and balance resulting in smaller grapes with thicker skins and consequently more expressive colours, aromas and flavours, in addition to a small output.
Harvesting is carried out manually and a selection made of clusters and individual grapes. Some of the grapes are frozen to achieve a pre-fermentative maceration of at least 6 days. Fermentation itself takes place at a low temperature in order to obtain more delicate aromas. Then the wine is placed in 300 and 600-litre oak casks and aged for 14 months.
Intense ruby red colour. Aromas of violets with hints of fresh strawberries and cherries accompanied by sweet vanilla and lightly toasted oak. Medium bodied with hints of white pepper and a long finish.
"Classic cranberry and raspberry aromas lead to a soft, fruity palate of rich, juicy cherry and strawberry and a jammy, spiced kirsch finish. Striking all the right notes for a Chilean Pinot, this shows great depth and personality while remaining appealing for everyday summer drinking."
