DOM VINEYARD

Located in Maipo Valley, on the Coastal Mountain Range, on a south facing slope, with a colluvial soil.

SURROUNDINGS

This vineyard is located in the Metropolitan Region, in a transversal mountain chain belonging to the Coastal Range. The vines are planted on a gentle, south-facing slope and therefore receive much less sunshine in the summer, making it cooler. Further up the slope there is abundant very old native vegetation. The area is quite windy in the afternoons because of its proximity to the Maipo river gorge. All of these factors make this vineyard a cooler place than the rest of Maipo. The grapes therefore ripen more slowly, producing fresher and more elegant wines.

SOIL

The soil is on a slope of colluvial origin broken up by very stony layers. These have been formed because high up, in some parts of the hills, there are cliffs with fractured rocks that fall to the base and rest there, forming a soil with very angular stones. This soil is perfect for planting Cabernet Sauvignon because of its low fertility, which naturally controls the growth and production of grapes, resulting in very high quality.

WINES

This vineyard produces one of the best Cabernet Sauvignons in Chile. The variety achieves excellent expression here, reaching a level of unrivalled elegance and great quality, with a highly complex, elegant nose and silky tannins. The mouth is extraordinary and very long. These wines are set to become classics of the Maipo Valley in years to come.
