Terrunyo

Terrunyo comes from the selection of a specific block of our best vineyards, in which we have identified a unique and complex character in each variety selected. This line included the first ultra-premium Carmenere, becoming a benchmark for the Chilean wine industry.

Origin

Terrunyo Cabernet Sauvignon (Andes)

Domain of Origin (D.O.): Pirque, Maipo Valley

Origin: Block Las Terrazas, Pirque Viejo Vineyard, Maipo Valley.

Soil: Maipo River south shore. Alluvial origin, stony, poor in nutrients and, due to its elevated sub-soil gravel content, highly permeable. This soil fosters scarcely vigorous plants and, therefore, concentrated and ripe grapes.

Climate: Semi-arid Mediterranean, the Andes Mountains and close-by Maipo River exert strong influences. Marked day-to-night temperature variation favors good fruit concentration and intense aromas.

 

Terrunyo Carmenere (Entre Cordilleras)

D.O.: Peumo, Cachapoal Valley

Origin: Block 27, Peumo Vineyard, Cachapoal Valley.

Soil: Deep clay-loam, alluvial origin. The considerable proportion of clay helps retain water and administers it in small doses to the plants, a cycle that is conducive to achieving appropriate Carmenere ripeness.

Climate: Sub humid Mediterranean, with warm days and cold nights. The nearby Cachapoal River has a cooling effect, especially on summer nights. This encourages a more phased ripening process.

 

Terrunyo Syrah (Costa)

D.O.: Casablanca, Casablanca Valley

Origin: Block 3, Los Boldos Vineyard, Casablanca Valley.

Soil: Red clay, poor in organic matter and quite permeable with very good drainage because the vineyards are planted on hillsides with a southeastern exposure, and the combination helps balance the vines.

The soils are colluvial in origin with red clay in the first 35 cm, followed by decomposed rock (alterita) and granitic soil.

Climate: Coastal. With summer high temperatures of 27–28°C and lows of 2°C. Key factors are the cool sea breezes, the early morning fog and the wind, all of which help to produce more intense varietal flavours and aromas.

Terrunyo Riesling (Costa)

D.O.: Casablanca, Casablanca Valley

Origin: Block 6, Los Boldos Vineyard, Casablanca Valley.

Soil: Red clay, poor in organic matter and quite permeable with very good drainage because the vineyards are planted on hillsides with a southeastern exposure, and the combination helps balance the vines.

The soils are colluvial in origin with red clay in the first 35 cm, followed by decomposed rock (alterita) and granitic soil.

Climate: Coastal. With summer high temperatures of 27–28°C and lows of 2°C. Key factors are the cool sea breezes, the early morning fog and the wind, all of which help to produce more intense varietal flavours and aromas.
