Gravas del Maipo is born as a tribute by Concha y Toro to the majestic Andes and the hidden gravel from silently eroded, displaced and molded soils year after year in the thousands of years old Maipo basin. It reflects the challenge of positioning Chile as a high-quality wine producer, together with the constant and passionate search for identifying those terroirs that faithfully express the character of a grape variety.
Buin, Maipo Valley
The Quinta de Maipo Vineyard is located 420 m above sea level and extends along the southern bank of the Maipo River at the foot of the Andes Mountains. The vines come from a massal selection and are trellised to vertical shoot position. The rocky characteristics of the alluvial soil with gravel to two meters deliver complex, elegant, and nicely rounded tannins to the Syrah.
Of alluvial origin, silty-clay in the rst horizon. Gravel predominates below the surface, which lends the soil good permeability and few nutrients.
Semi-arid Mediterranean with Andean influence and protected by the nearby hills. The area has a long dry season, and precipitation is concentrated between June and August.
15 months in French oak barrels (50% new, 50% one use).
