A medium ruby-red in colour. Fragrant aromas of plums, mint and chocolate. On the palate, lush and elegant with a firm, ripe texture and excellent acidity. The tannins are soft and the finish is dry but lengthy.

Description

Details

The Villalobos family estate is located close to the village of Ranguili in Chile's Colchagua Valley. The region is noted for its dry summer days and cooler nights. The Wild Vineyard' is essentially of Carignan vines planted during the 1940's and 50's and the vines have been allowed to grow wild, free from any chemical intervention. As a result, native Chilean flora such as rose bushes, pine trees and blackberry bushes thrive amongst the vines.

Vineyards
The soil is ploughed by horse and only natural 'tisanes' are used to keep the weeds under control. Grapes are hand-harvested.

Vinification
Only gravity is used in the cellar and the wine is neither fined nor filtered. Aged slowly in old French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes
A medium ruby-red in colour. Fragrant aromas of plums, mint and chocolate. On the palate, lush and elegant with a firm, ripe texture and excellent acidity. The tannins are soft and the finish is dry but lengthy.
