General information

Variety: Syrah 88%, Cabernet Sauvignon 12%

Origin: Quinta de Maipo vineyard, DO Buin, Maipo Valley

Soil: Year after year we choose the best blocks of grapes from three different soils in the Quinta de Maipo vineyard.

  • Hillside: Tectonic in origin with a clay structure, this shallow soil has very low fertility and produces small, concentrated clusters that lend weight and structure to the Syrah planted in this sector.
  • Upper Terrace: Alluvial soil with volcanic ash deposits and asilty-loam structure; this sector is also planted with Syrah and produces wines with smooth, elegant tannins.
  • Lower Terrace: The soil is alluvial in origin, with a sandy structure and extremely rocky, with very low fertility and good drainage that offers ideal conditions for growing classic, concentrated, and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon
