Vineyard

The Peumo Vineyard is located 170 m a.s.l. and extends over terraces and hills of the Coastal Range along the Cachapoal River. The vines come from pre-phylloxera vine stock and are trellised to vertical shoot position. The soils are deep and have a top layer of clay that retains moisture, which helps control plant vigor and growth, and more importantly, allows the vines to remain active until late May, when Carmenere is harvested.

Soil

Deep alluvial silty-clay associated with the riverbed.

Climate

Mediterranean, with an average of 19ºC difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures and a strong influence of the Cachapoal River and Lake Rapel.

AGING

“A soft and plush red, with concentrated, well-spiced flavors of dried blueberry, blackberry and roasted plum. Minerally midpalate, offering a finish of mocha and dried green herbal notes.”
