Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this wine come from the Molina area, close to the Andes mountains in Curico Valley. This leads to good acidity and a fresh, floral character. Hand-picked during the first half of March, the grapes are crushed, and undergo four hours of cold maceration at 46.4 F (8 C). fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures between 53.6F – 57.2 F (12 – 14 C). The must was protected from oxygen at all times during the 25- day fermentation process.

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.
