Winemaker's comment

Our Delanz 2018 shows a beautiful bright ruby color with violet hues. The nose is delicately perfumed, fresh and lively, with classic aromas of violets and raspberries. On the palate, fresh fruit appears, followed by subtle spice notes. Very pure and intense, with delicious elegance accompanied by perfectly ripe tannins that hold the wine towards great persistence and finesse.

Terroir

It is located at Andes Mountains foot on the Maipo River south bank, where there is great terroir diversity. It is surrounded by hills and has varied geological formations, slopes, altitudes, exposures and soil textures.

Climate

The Winery has a semi-arid Mediterranean climate. The daily temperature oscillation can reach 20 ° C, as a result of the cold air coming down from the Andes Mountains.

Soil

The unique configuration of the mountains that surround Alto Jahuel delays the drop in temperatures at sunset, resulting in more ripe and sweet grapes, with soft, round tannins.
