Additional information

Bodega Volcanes de Chile

Bodegas Volcanes de Chile was founded in 2009 with a single mission: to create wine from grapes grown in Chile’s distinctive volcanic soils. Head Winemaker Pilar Diaz describes their philosophy as ‘To produce wines which reflect this unique and carefully studied origin and display the purity of the grape varietals without excessive use of oak. For us the volcanic character is an attribute which makes our wines more vibrant and richer with greater complexity in aromas and on the palate.’ Chile has over 2,900 volcanos meaning that this bodega sources from vineyards across the country. Each grower produces grapes that uniquely reflect their own terroir, giving winemakers an enviable range of options to choose from.

Production

Hand-harvested grapes. Cold maceration for 4 days at 6°-8°C for colour intensity and concentration of aromas before fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, using selected yeasts and not exceeding 28°C. Post-fermentation maceration for 22-25 days. Racking into French and American oak for MLF and aging for 9 months.
