More info

The grapes come from the El Ensueño estate in the lowest and coldest sector of Casablanca. The sandy-clay soils with low fertility and the valley’s cold maritime climate give rise to fresh and highly aromatic grapes. The vines are vertically positioned and spur pruned. Once ripe, the grapes are an intense pink colour with thick skins; they were hand harvested into small bins during early March.

The grapes were whole-cluster pressed, then once the juice had settled it fermented at 12-14ºC using wild yeast. The wine saw no oak before bottling.

Morandé

Morandé was founded in 1996 by Pablo Morandé, and found immediate recognition both domestically and abroad. Morandé are true pioneers – they were the first family to develop the Casablanca D.O., recognising the fantastic potential of this cool-climate wine region. They also led the way in reviving old viticultural regions such as Maule and Itata, working with old dry-farmed bush vines and unconventional varieties such as Carignan, País and Cinsault. All of the wines are produced with grapes from Morandé’s own vineyards. Their winemaking philosophy is guided by seeking the right terroir for each grape variety, and with significant vineyard holdings they are well placed to achieve this.
