3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Maipo Valley, Chile From the Carneros Viejo vineyard, in Santa Rita’s famed Alto Jahuel estate in Chile’s Maipo Valley. The area enjoys a sub-humid Mediterranean climate. The Andes Mountains create a significant thermal oscillation between day and nighttime temperatures, and a gradual fall in temperatures as summer concludes, resulting in a slow ripening of grapes that facilitates concentration of fruit and optimal development of tannins. Soils are alluvial in origin, stratified and slightly sloping, of medium depth and texture, and basic pH.

Tasting notes
Ruby red with good intensity ------------------------------------------ A commanding bouquet of ripe fruit, black currant and blueberries, lend freshness and elegance exquisitely mingled with delicate notes of oak, tobacco and vanilla lend sweetness and persistence. ------------------------------------------ Highly concentrated, intensely flavored and rich in tannins, with a full, magnificent body and a remarkable, sleek finish.

Wine maker notes
Fully-ripened grapes are hand picked in a vineyard first planted in the mid 1950s. Grapes are partially crushed and fermented in French oak barrels, permitting ideal temperature control, for about 12 days, followed by another 15 days of pos-fermentation maceration. After malolactic fermentation, the wine is stored in 100% new French oak barrels for 16 months, with a racking off after 6 months to obtain a finer evolution of it tannins. The wine is bottled and aged for a further year prior to release.
