The Bodega Volcanes de Chile project has been based on three phases or steps aimed at producing fine wines that embrace the concept of volcanic terroir. The three phases correspond to the different locations where we cultivate our vines between the Coastal Mountains Range in the west and the Andes Mountains Range in the east. The morphology and soil composition of these valleys are the result of tectonic plate subduction over millions of years. These vineyards are located between the Coastal Mountains Range and the intermediary valleys where there was once volcanic activity. Over time the volcanic arc has shifted eastwards from the Pacific Ocean towards the Andes Mountains Range. This has created terroirs that are characterized by intrusive igneous rocks, lending an intense minerality to the grapes. This type of terroir can be found at our Cauquenes and Lomas de Leyda Estates.
This revealing and sophisticated wine is intense violet in colour. The bouquet reveals deep aromas of wild flowers, some spices like oregano and cinnamon, fresh red and black fruit, such as black cherry, raspberry and strawberry. There are also notes of smoke, tobacco and minerals. This is a wine with personality, weight, body and structure, featuring rich, velvety and energetic tannins. It achieves good balance between fruit and wood. The finish is dense, elegant, complex and persistent.
