The aroma presents ripe fruit, balanced with the sweet and toasted notes of wood. The palate is soft with well structured tannins, leaving a persistent flavour.
With 250 hectares of Institute for Marketecology (IMO) and Demeter certified organic vineyards and a further 250 hectares in conversion, Emiliana is one of the worlds most important producers of Organic and Biodynamic wines. Their spectacular Biodynamic vineyard and winery at Los Robles is a model that attracts visiting viticulturalists and winemakers from all over the world. Jose Guilsasti (viticulture) and Alvaro Espinosa (winemaking) were key to establishing this project but there is a wealth of young talent involved. These innovative wines are made with great care and attention and the results are inspiring. The flagship Coyam has already become one of Chiles iconic wines but the whole range excels.
In the Vineyard
The central Valley goes from Maipo to the Maule Valley. This zone presents good draining and fertility, especially for red varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere. It has a Mediterranean climate, with hot summers characterized by having big temperature differences between day and night, and cold, rainy winters. This makes the grape grow well. The floor has an alluvial origin and its profoundness is ideal for agriculture.
In the Winery
The grape was manually harvested at the end of April. After it was processed, there was a cold prefermentative period, at 8C, for 5 to 7 days. Alcoholic fermentation remained with temperatures between 25C to 28C. After a post fermentative maceration, malolactic fermentation takes place naturally, with daily temperature controls. Part of this wine ages for 6 months in oak barrels.
This wine is ideal for cheeses, strong red meats and spiced dishes.
