Bold wines with bold labels – if you've got it, flaunt it! Sourced from the rich Central Valley vineyards and exhibiting all of the maximum-freshness fruit for which Chile is famous, these wines certainly punch above their weight and lend argument to the view that Chile is the world's most exciting wine region at the moment.

Much-needed winter rainfall replenished the soil water reserves and sustained the vines through the dry growing season that followed. Dry conditions reduced disease pressure and the grapes ripened slowly, encouraging good flavour accumulation in the fruit. 2018 was a good vintage for both quality and quantity and the wines show excellent varietal character.

The grapes were carefully sourced from selected growers in the Valle Central, which encompasses the subregions of the Maipo Valley, Rapel Valley, Curico Valley and the Maule Valley. The Central Valley is a 1,000 kilometre plateau which sits between the Andes Mountains and the cool Pacific Ocean. The climate, with its warm sunny days, cooler evenings and intense sunlight encourages a long growing season, which is ideally suited to producing healthy grapes with concentrated fruit flavours. The soils are fertile and the vineyards benefit from a natural irrigation from the melted snow from the Andes.

The grapes were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, to preserve the fresh style and fruity aromatics.

A rounded and well flavoured wine with notes of green apple and pear finishing on a mouthwatering lemony note. Chilled as an apéritif or with fresh salad, shellfish, fish and white meats. Its refreshing acidity also goes very well with Asian cuisine.
