The vineyard nestles into the Monte Rekewa in the southern extreme of the Cachapoal Valley and is fed by the Rekewa River which is the natural border between the Cachapoal and Colchagua valleys. It is the first major elevation looking from east to west from the Andes Mountains. The rugged Estate has poor, rocky soils making it ideal for the production of expressive, concentrated wines. Precipitous slopes of 45° to 51° create lower water retention which produces smaller, more concentrated grapes. The vineyard fluctuates from 300 to 500mts above sea level. The afternoon summer breeze that sweeps off the Andes mountains also provides slower grape maturation. The weather is delightful throughout the grape maturing months, with temperatures around 30°C in the day time that decrease to approximately 14°C at night. The grape varieties planted on this unique terrain are Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Carmenere, Merlot and Viognier.
