Unique terroir in the shadow of the ‘El Descabazado’ volcano
El Viejo del Valle
Using ancient vines from prime spots in the Maule Valley, the team from Viejo del Valle produce fresh yet surprisingly complex wines. From their base, in the shadow of the ‘El Descabazado’ volcano, they work with a number of grape varieties in an effort to showcase the unique terroir of their glacial vineyard.
Pick of their wines is most definitely the Pinot Noir – a fantastic example of the improvements to be found in Chilean Pinot Noir in recent years. Filled with bright fruit, a portion of the wine undergoes barrel fermentation, adding an extra degree of complexity, depth and a hint of vanilla on the finish.
