This wine was fermented and aged in centennial tinajas (amphorae), a tradition originated in the first vineyards of the Itata Valley planted in 1551. The result is a tribute to the first winemakers of the country and to this special terroir.

The grapes are destemmed and the whole berries placed inside the tinajas (amphorae). Alcoholic fermentation is carried out by native yeast and the wine remains in contact with the skins for 6 months until malolactic fermentation is complete. The wine is then racked to another tinaja and matured for a further 6 months prior to bottling. No fining or filtering.

This wine is aromatic and intense with great volume in the mouth and achieves a balance between the fresh acidity and the texture contributed by 6 months’ maceration with the skins. Vinification in amphorae contributes rich texture to the palate and results in a wine with tension, volume and smoothness. Ageing potential of around 10 years.
