PLANTING DISTANCE: 2,1 mt x 1.0 mt
YIELD: 0,8 kg/vine
SOIL TYPE: The soil at La Esperanza Vineyard belongs to those called “Red clay”. It
originates from vulcanism and erosion of the Andes Mountains from around 2 million
years ago. They are alluvial and fluvioglacial deposits from the Quaternary. The color is
red, clay dominates, medium depth, rich in organic matter, slightly acidic pH, poor in
phosphorus and abundant in potassium. The vineyard is placed in gentle slopes.

It was a cold year, spring was rainy but frost free. Cloudy mornings with a tendency to
clear out during the afternoon which allowed a quick drying of the fruit.
There were rains during the ripening season but they did not affect the vineyard with
fungal diseases. 920 mm of rainfall.

The grapes were hand picked during the morning and transported by a reefer truck to
the winery. Whole cluster pressed and racked the next morning to barrels to ferment
with high turbidity.
Native yeasts were used and once the alcoholic fermentation was completed, the
malolactic fermentation ocurred naturally to finish with around 70% of MLF.
Natural cold stabilization after one winter in barrels.
Protein stabilized, bottled in July 2022 & released to sale after 8 months.

hints of toasted almond and vanilla.
TASTE: It is a balanced, young and vibrant wine. Consistent with its aromatic profile, ‘VIE’
combines great character with amazing smoothness as well a medium body. It has a
powerful mouthfeel, which defines its beautiful balance and a persistent finish. The oak
is well integrated showing undertones of hazelnut and vanilla.
FOOD PAIRING: Highly recommended with oysters, avalone and fresh sea food. It
matches very well with richer fish preparations, chicken and sashimi.
