I am from: Colchagua, Chile
The Story: The Los Vascos estate lies at the foothills of the coastal range, 200km South West of Santiago, in the cooler part of Colchagua where the vines benefit from the natural cooling influence of the Pacific Ocean.Grapes are carefully picked by hand when reaching phenolic ripeness. After thorough sorting and desteming, grapes are placed in stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Regular pump over ensures a gentle extraction of the tannins. After malolactic fermentation, 50% of the wine is transferred into French oak barrels for a period of 12 months.Why You‚Äôll Love Me: I am deep and structured, with notes of plum, blackberry and black pepper.
