Don Melchor 2008

Don Melchor was Chile’s first icon wine has consistently received the highest praise and recognition throughout its entire history since the beginning. This confirms it as one of the maximum representatives of Cabernet Sauvignon and the Puente Alto terroir as Chile’s finest origin for producing this variety.

Variety

Cabernet Sauvignon

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

Puente Alto, Alto Maipo Valley.

Vineyard

The 127-hectare vineyard consists of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7.1% Cabernet Franc, 1.9% Merlot, and 1% Petit Verdot. It is planted on the north bank of the Maipo River at an altitude of 650 meters above sea level. This zone lies at the foot of the Andes Mountains in the Maipo River Basin and corresponds to the Puente Alto Denomination of Origin.

The vineyard was planted in 1890 with a selection of pre-phylloxera vinestock brought from Bordeaux in the late 19th century. The vines growing in the vineyard today are a massal selection of those original vines and now average 30 years in age.

Soil

One of the most important characteristics of this site is that it is located on the Maipo River’s oldest alluvial terrace, whose soil contains abundant minerals, clay, gravel, and round stones due to the erosion caused by the glaciers as they advanced from the mountains toward the valley, dragging material that was later deposited on the terraces and lending a unique character to Don Melchor.

The Puente Alto soil has a 30-centimeter top layer of loam over a deep layer of very rocky soil. These soils ensure good drainage and low fertility, which limits the plants’ vegetative growth.

Climate

Another important factor of this extraordinary terroir is the cold influence of the Andes Mountains, which is responsible for the cool breezes in the valley and a broad differential between daytime and nighttime temperatures during the ripening period. These conditions encourage the tannins to ripen slowly and evenly and the grapes to produce more concentrated color and aromas, brighter acidity, and excellent fresh red fruit character.

The Puente Alto climate is semi-arid Mediterranean and receives an average of 35 centimeters of annual rainfall. It is in one of the coldest zones of the Alto Maipo Valley with an average annual temperature of 14.5ºC.

Marques Casa Concha

Its classical style expresses the character, nobility and concentration of the grapes which have had a long history in Chile. Prize-winners year by year, it has been ranked five times in the prestigious ranking of the Top 100 Wines of the Year, by Wine Spectator.

Variety

Denomination of Origin (D.O.)

Puente Alto, Maipo Valley.

Origin

Puente Alto Vineyard, Maipo Valley.

Soil

It is alluvial, stony, poor in nutrients and highly permeable due to the gravel sub-soil. It produces plants of frugal growth, which bear clusters of small, concentrated ripe grapes.

Climate

Semi-arid Mediterranean. Influenced by the Andes, this is the coolest part of the Maipo Valley. The larges swings in temperature from day to night prolongs grape ripening, concentrating the fruit and intensifying aromas
