Marques de Casa Concha Etiqueta Negra 2018

Dark red. Oily body with notes of cherry, blackcurrant, cedar, blackberry and black tar, as well as a hint of graphite. It has a deep concentration of flavors framed by strong tannins. A soft, almost silky, texture masks the wine’s tannin structure, which really stands out at the beginning of the long finish.

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

  • El Mariscal Vineyard, D.O. Puente Alto, Alto Maipo Valley.

Vineyard

The El Mariscal Vineyard has an altitude of 650 m.a.s.l., in the foothills of the Andes and along the northern bank of the Maipo River. The vineyard consists of pre-phylloxera vines along a vertical trellis. Its alluvial soil is lacking in nutrients and highly permeable due to the number of loose stones found in the subsoil. It produces fairly weak and slow-growing vines with concentrated and mature bunches.

Soil

Third alluvial terrace of Puente Alto, large content of round stones measuring around 50-70cm. Excellent drainage.

Climate

The semi-arid Mediterranean climate is highly influenced by the Andes Mountains. The vineyard is located in the coldest region of the Maipo Valley, with a variation of around 18°C between daily high and low temperatures. This leads to a longer grape maturation time and a concentration and intensification of their aromas.

AGING

16 months in French oak barrels. (60% new and 40% used).

“...Spicy and very classical, a faithful representation of Maipo, with the spiciness added by the Cabernet Franc. It has very good balance, and the grapes are very integrated.”
