Colchagua Valley, Chile. Grown in the deep soils of colluvial origin in the coastal range. The clay-loam texture lends mineral complexity and allows high water retention.
Hand harvested in May, the certified Biodynamic grapes undergo a double-selection process and are individually sorted prior to being entered for fermentation. Vinification begins with a 4-7 day cold-soak followed by alcoholic fermentation with native yeasts and regular pumpovers in French oak vats. A 25-30 day maceration period followed by malolactic fermentation takes place naturally in French oak barrels. Gê is neither fined nor filtered and is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, resting another 12 months in bottle prior to release.
Color: Deep plum red with violet tones Bouquet: Presents intense aromas of black fruits and berries with mineral notes and a soft touch of tobacco. Taste: Generously fruity with cedar notes. Well balanced with tremendous volume, well rounded tannins and a long finish.
