Apaltagua Grial Carmenere

Notes from the winemaker
Our Apaltagua Grial boasts opulent, ruby red coloring. It is dense, well-structured, and balanced with touches of plum, blackberry, and mineral complimented by a subtle hint of toasted oak.
Appetizing and juicy, it is a delicious example of the best Carmenere Chile has to offter.

Vineyards
Our entire vineyard is carefully tended with affection and with respect for the natural surroundings.
The grapes in our Apaltagua Grial come from our own 60-hectare vineyard in Apalta in the Colchagua Valley in Chile, a place renowned for the perfect natural conditions requiered for the growth of grapevines.

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

Vinification
The grapes are harvest by hand in May, with care given to select the best bunches of grapes from our 60 years old vines. In order to extract color and aromas, the must is interfused with its skin for three days at low temperatures. The must in 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 next left to macerate for two additional weeks in order to extracts its fruity characteristics. After that, the wine is aged in brand new oak barrels for twelve months. Finally, the wine is cellared in bottles for six additional months before its launch on the market.
