Description

Famed for being the most highly awarded cool climate coastal winery in Chile, and with Viviana Navarette at the helm (voted Chile's top winemaker), these are wines that are completely distinct from what we have come to expect from the country. The unique microclimate comes from both the proximity to the coast but also, the cooling nature of the Humboldt current. Where the central valley is hot and dry, Leyda is cool and wet and it is this specific climate that brings the wines the unique freshness and balance of acidity that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Becuase of the unique expression and incredible quality, the winery soon had its own DO founded as D.O. Leyda Valley in 2001. The wines are born from two unique sites, El Granito, just 4Km from the sea and El Maiten at 12Km from the sea, bith with ancient granitic soild which lend a certain minerality to all the wines in the range

Wine tasting notes

Vinification notes

The grapes were hand harvested in 2 different picking moments, on April 10th and 15th at 23-24°brix. The picking was divided in different days in order to have different components and flavours for the final blend. The grapes were pressed as whole clusters at low bars and the juice was chilled down to 8 º C and clarified to 130 NTU. The fermentation was made 100% in stainless steel tank with the purpose of obtaining a fresh wine. Neutral yeasts were used helping to show the pureness of this grape variety. The fermentation was done at low temperatures (13,5-16°C) for 20 days. The wine was left on its lees for 6 months with a batonnage regime in order to get roundness and volume in the palate.
