The fruit for this wine comes from vineyards in the Maule Valley. The vines are trellised to vertical shoot position and guyot pruned. The low-fertility soils are mostly of alluvial origin with gravel and clay loam in the profile. Irrigation is tightly controlled to ensure balanced vine growth and steady maturation of the grapes.

The grapes were crushed and given three days’ cold maceration, then fermented at 25-28ºC with another 18-20 days on skins before going through natural malolactic fermentation. Twenty-five percent of the wine was aged in fourth and fifth-use oak barrels (mostly French) for six months before blending and bottling.

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.
