Rapel Valley: Grenache / Maipo Valley: Petite Sirah / Maule Valley: Mourvèdre
Grenache: 45% - Petite Sirah: 38% - Mourvèdre: 17%
This Mediterranean blend of Grenache, Petite Sirah and Mourvedre, heavily influenced by Chilean winemaking, demonstrates Bodega Volcanes de Chile’s efforts to rescue the inherent value of the volcanic soils of the Rapel, Maipo and Maule valleys and to bring to light the characteristics and
development of these new varieties in these areas.
The vineyards are located in emblematic terroirs composed of volcanic, igneous and intrusive rocks that have been formed by volcanic activity during geological periods over millions of years through to the present day.
In the Rapel valley (Cachapoal), Almahue area, the Grenache vines have been planted on steep slopes composed of volcanic rocks, andesitic and basaltic lava, pyroclastic rocks and breccia, interstratified with sedimentary rock of marine origin. This is a very warm area, ideal for this type of
variety with its structured tannins, fostering highly concentrated and perfectly ripe grapes. The plots of Petite Sirah are located in the coastal mountain range, close to Melipilla, in the Maipo valley. They have soils formed from intrusive rocks from the coastal batholith, high in clay, less
presence of decomposed granite, less evolved soils. This area is a little cooler, resulting in grapes with great aromatic intensity and bringing out the floral aromas and smooth, ripe tannins of the variety.
The Mourvedre vines are also in the coastal mountain range, but further south, in the Cauquenes area of the Maule valley. The slopes here are composed of intrusive material with a high presence of granite, clay and quartz. The soils in this area are more evolved. This area experiences warm days
and cool nights, the right conditions for this Mediterranean variety to ripen properly with great concentration. As a result, aromatic and vibrant wines can be obtained.
Taste: This revealing and sophisticated wine is intense violet in color. The nose reveals deep aromas of wild flowers, some spices like oregano and cinnamon, fresh red and black fruit, such as black cherry, raspberry and strawberry. There are also notes of smoke, tobacco and minerals. This is a wine with personality, weight, body and structure, featuring rich, velvety and energetic tannins. It achieves good balance between fruit and wood. The finish is dense, elegant, complex and persistent.
Pairing: This wine matches perfect with steak, stews, roasted pork, lamb, game, poultry dishes, empanadas, paella, risotto, charcuterie and cheese.
