Detailed info

The ambitious project that led to this wine can be summed up with a quest for extreme terroirs to plant vines on Chilean soil, while ignoring expert opinions. This journey started in 2007 and was a near crazy idea to some. It certainly presented its share of colossal challenges to the four partners, but in the end was a true success as revealed by this cuvee. The blend of Carignan, Carmenère, Malbec and Syrah emits flavours of eucalyptus, smoke, black fruits, spices and violet. This is an aromatic wine that will have you firing up the barbecue.
