Production information

Producer: Chilcas

Individual vineyards, ecological wine practices (including some vineyards certified as organic) and a new winemaker all add up to an incredibly exciting portfolio ranging from Reserva upwards. Chilcas’ approach is to nurture individual parcels and vineyards to create wines with individual character and personality. The wines are quite different from the vast swathes of generic, branded wines to come out of Chile at similar price points.

Production note

The grapes are handpicked and transported immediately to the winery, where they are de-stemmed without rollers to avoid breaking the berries. 100% fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation is 17-20 days, strict temperatures to preserve aromatic intensity. 4 to 6 pumpovers to move 50–100% of volume as determined by enological tastings. 50% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for 8 months.
