Denomination of Origin
Quinta de Maipo Vineyard, D.O Buin, Maipo Valley.
The Quinta de Maipo Vineyard is located 420 m a.s.l. and extends along the southern bank of the Maipo River at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The vines are clone 174 and massal selection and trellised to vertical shoot position. The stony characteristics of the vineyard’s alluvial soils and gravel to a depth of 2 meters deliver rounded, complex, and elegant tannins to the Syrah.
Semi-arid Mediterranean with a strong influence of the Andes Mountains. The pronounced difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures (approximately 18oC) extends the ripening period and both concentrates and intensifies the aromas in the grapes.
18 months in 50% in 5,000L Piedmont foudres and 50% French oak barrels, 20% first use and 80% second use.
Of alluvial origin with silty clay on the first horizon. Gravel predominates below the surface, which results in good permeability and low nutrient content.
