Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero

Notes from the Winemaker
Red-violet in color, brilliant and vivid, our Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero shows ripe blackberries, tobacco, and spices. It possesses a remarkable combination of ripe fruit notes and oak mixed with vanilla. Its flavor is juicy, full, and concentrated, highlighting the softness in the mouth and the raspberry and plum tannins with a touch of tobacco. It has a long and lingering finish.

Vineyards
Our entire vineyards are carefully tended with affection and with respect for the natural surroundings. The grapes in our Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero come from our own 60 hectare vineyards in Apalta in the Colchagua Valley. Apalta is known as the valley blessed by the hand of God for its perfect natural conditions required for the growth of grapevines.
Harvested by hand, the grapes are transported in trays of 10 kilograms which enable us to preserve the organoleptic quality of the grapes. Yields are between 7000-8000 kilograms per hectare.

Climate
Colchagua Valley has a Mediterranean-style climate with a cold and rainy winter and a dry and warm summer. Marked temperature differences between day and night make ideal conditions for the growth of our wine grapes.

Vinication
Our grapes are harvested by hand in April when they have reached optimal maturity. The harvest is done very selectively in order to ensure only the best grapes from our 60 year old vines.
In order to extract color and aromas, the must is interfused with its skin for three days at low temperatures. The must is then fermented for seven days in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts at temperatures ranging from 28° to 30° C (82° to 86°F).
The wine is then left to macerate for two additional weeks in order to extract its fruity characteristics. Afterwards, 60% of the wine is aged in American and French oak barrels and 40% in stainless steel tanks.The wine is then aged in oak for 10 to 12 months. Finally, the wine is cellared in bottles for six additional months before its launch on the market.
