From the work on the vines, through the selection of the grapes, vinification and bottling, the process follows a philosophy marked by rigorousness and respect for the primary ingredients that make good wine: the grapes that lend origin and resulting in the tremendous quality that has won awards in Chile and abroad. Our winemaking philosophy can be summarized with the following words: in each Misiones de Rengo wine we seek to express and display all of the characteristics and qualities of the soil and environment of its origin. We strongly believe that the essence of a wine is in its terroir (its soil, climate, people, and vineyards). We also believe that we should intervene as little as possible in the winemaking process; it should be as natural as possible and human limitation should only serve to heighten the qualities brought by the grapes from the vineyard. .

Fairly smoky on the nose and while there is a nice background note of herb and some almost vegetal licorice it's really quite fruity with big black berry and black plum tones that are framed with vanilla and toasty spice notes. On the palate this is a fairly rich wine, not weighty, but with good depth of flavor and a nice bed of tannins that keeps this tense but still supple. The fruit has nice black raspberry notes with a touch of a meaty edge and a long finish of lightly peppery, spicy toasty oak. A style that combines that flavors of rather ripe fruit with the feel of a cooler climate wine. This should have very broad appeal, likely to please novice and collector alike. 90pts
