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

Most grapes were hand picked and a small portion was machine harvested to allow harvesting when the grapes were at their optimum ripeness. 100% of the grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for 15 to 18 days at 25-28°C. Alcoholic fermentation included 3-4 pumpovers daily to rotate 40-80% of the total volume in accordance with enological criteria and the winemaker’s tastings to maximize varietal expression in the final blend. The wine was stabilized for 15 to 20 days at 4°C and then earth-filtered prior to bottling.
