Vineyard

The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m above sea level and extended along the Cachapoal River, on terraces of hills of the Coastal Mountains. The vines come from pre-phylloxera cuttings and are trellised to vertical shoot position and cordon pruned. The soils are Deep with an upper layer of clay that retains moisture, which controls the vines`vigor and growth and allows them to remain active through late May, when the Carmenere is picked.

Soil

Deep alluvial silty-clay soil associated with riverbed. The clayms retains wáter, which contributes to good ripening of the grapes. The characteristics of the retention are perfect for controlling the growth of the plants.

Climate

Sub-humid Mediterranean. Warm days and cool nights. The influence of the Cachapoal River helps lower the nighttime temperatures during the summer, which encourages the grapes to ripen more slowly.

AGING

14 months in French oak barrels.

"Elegant and powerful, with loads of dark berry, cherry and currant flavors, featuring notes of dark olive and allspice. The leafy finish is long and rich, showing some creamy hints to the dark chocolate accents."
