Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this sinard wine come from the San Antonio Valley, known for its cold climate, coastal influences, and old granitic soils, which enables tremendous aromatic development in the grapes, very good acidity levels, and minerality. Yields are limited for greater concentration, and the grapes were picked during the second half of March. Once crushed, they underwent a six-hour cold maceration in stainless steel tanks for greater extraction of aromas and volume on the palate. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a temperature of 55.4° F. (13°C) over 30 days. 

Interesting Fact
The Terra Pura illustration on the label seeks to convey the importance of maintaining the ecosystem in which humans, plants and animals coexist. The trumpets/speakers at the apex of the illustration represent the importance of listening to what nature has to tell us.
