  • Quebrada Seca Vineyard D.O. Limarí , Limarí Valley.

Vineyard

The Quebrada Seca Vineyard is located 190 m a.s.l., just 22 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean on the northern bank of the Limarí River. The clay soils are rich in calcium carbonate. The temperatures are cold, and the mornings are cloudy, which allows the fruit to ripen slowly and produce fresh wines.

Soil

Blocks 3 is associated with the Santa Cristina soil series. The calcareous clay soils are stony and of colluvial origin. Block 9 is also of colluvial origin, and its soils are associated with the Quebrada Seca soil series, which has thinner, calcareous clay soils and no stones.

Climate

Coastal. The cool breezes from the coast blow directly into the valley and moderate the temperatures, and this, combined with the typical morning clouds allow the grapes to ripen slowly and thus produce fresher wines.

AGING

12 months in French oak barrels, 18% new and 82 % second and third-use.
