Additional Information

Vina Morande was founded in 1996 with the aim of producing innovative wines of great quality, with a clear focus on the development of its brands. To achieve this they have developed production processes and quality guarantees that includes the following: selection of terroirs, grape varieties and clones, vineyard architecture, advanced irrigation systems, organic management and systems for monitoring the growth, ripening and development of the fruit.

The fruit for this wine comes from the Belen property in the cold Lo Ovalle sector of Casablanca. The clay and granitic soils of limited fertility and the valley’s maritime influence enable the production of grapes with high aromatic expression and abundant freshness. The vineyard is vertically positioned, guyot pruned, and drip irrigated. Harvest takes place in early April.

The grapes are hand picked and pneumatic presses are used to obtain the must, which is decanted at low temperatures to reach the maximum clarity. It is fermented with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks at 10º–12ºC, which enables it to develop all of its varietal potential with pronounced citrus notes. The wine remains on its fine lees until bottling to preserve its freshness and increase its volume on the palate.
