Description

Azuda Garnacha 2018 Clos de Luz

Variety: Garnacha 100%

Pale ruby ​​red with garnet shades

The nose concentrates elegant aromas of wild berries, meadow flowers and red plums. The aromatic herbs take on the connotation of rosemary and thyme, with notes of undergrowth and pepper. Sweet spices make it even better.

On the palate it definitely conquers. Very well matched between hardness and softness, it is voluminous and well structured at the same time. Excellent as a whole, and for the pleasantness of the individual parts. Long and elegant, it is enhanced by aromas of blueberry, currant and aromatic herbs.

Chile has the advantage of being one of the few sites in the world where phylloxera has not taken root. For this reason the vines are all ungrafted, so that they are able to express in a unique way the capabilities of this vine, originally from Sardinia. The interpretation of Clos de Luz certainly is.

The grapes dedicated to Garnacha are grown in the Almahue Valley belonging to the D.O. Rapel Valley. Almahue Valley is located 70 miles southeast of Santiago, 40 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 25 miles from the Andes.

All processing is done by hand or with the help of horses. Between the rows they practice green manure and do not use any type of herbicide or chemical fertilizer.

After the harvest, it ferments in stainless steel containers, with the use of indigenous yeasts.

It is aged in French oak barrels of 300 liters of second and third passage for 12 months, and after bottling it remains in the cellars for another 6 months.
