Colluvial, with gentle slopes of granitic origin as well as terraces formed by materials deposited by the Tinguiririca River.

A taut, muscular red, with forest floor notes to the luscious dried berry and cherry tart flavors, accented by olive and tar notes. The juicy finish is filled with baker's chocolate and white pepper details. Lithe and pure.

“Marchigüe is on the coastal side of Colchagua and, thanks to the marine influence, it offers wines with more nerve and sharper focus than those from the warm center of the valley. This wine’s acidity pricks the tongue, and its red fruit refreshes everything in its path. It feels alive and energetic, crunchy and vivacious”.
