Don Melchor comes from a very specific place with a completely identifiable geographic origin associated with a tremendously valuable terroir that is capable of endowing the wine with a unique, recognizable, inimitable personality and expression.
After observing the Puente Alto vineyard year after year, we have identified small differences in the vines, which have been divided into seven blocks –six for the Cabernet Sauvignon and one for the Cabernet Franc- each with its own distinct expression.
The vineyard is managed row by row and the needs of each plant are observed to convey these particular qualities to the blend. This way, both the Cabernet Sauvignon and the Cabernet Franc make their contributions to the final blend of Don Melchor.
The remarkable cellaring potential of this wine increases over the years, making each vintage extraordinary.
