Outstanding

More than a wine, this is a vehicle; it takes you to the heart of the Alto
Maipo, at the foothills of the mountains in the outskirts of Santiago.
From very old Cabernet vines and 25% Merlot, this is filled with cassis
and minty flavours, floating on a velvety palate of delicate tannins. A
true expression of one of the most traditional viticultural areas in
Chile.
