The grapes are 100% Merlot from our vineyards Fundo San Manuel in Villa Alegre, located in the Maule Valley. The grapes are harvested the second fortnight of April in loads of small capacity to avoid bruising, and transported to our cellars. Fermentation is executed under controlled temperature. During fermentation, pulp is in contact with the grapes-skin to extract the colored materials, main characteristic of this varietal wine of velvety red tones. The wine is filtered and stabilized. It can be bottled immediately, since this fine wine gains considerably in flavour and bouquet when resting in bottles. They remain bottled in our cellars for 6 months before their comercialization.
