The 2011 vintage was of superb quality. Summer and autumn were cooler than average and free from rain, which meant that we could achieve very harmonious fruit and tannin ripeness. This was also the first vintage in which we used 35-hectolitre Austrian foudres to age this wine for 24 months. The fruit is from our emblematic Alto de Piedras vineyard in Isla de Maipo
