About the Vineyard
Rapel Valley is located in the central part of Chile. It includes the sub Valleys of Cachapoal and Colchagua. It exhibits a semi - arid Mediterranean climate with a winter – only rainfall pattern. Our Sauvignon Blanc comes from a very special area in Cachapoal, directly beneath the foothills of the Andes. The vines grow with the cold influence of the mountains and express all the minerality of the vineyards unique stony soil. "Las Kuras" means stones in the native Mapuche language.
We want to enhance the best fruit that Rapel Valley offers its structure and natural acidity. Our key points are strict fruit selection with Vistalys, natural juice decantation and low temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. We added 8% of Semillón from our old vines in Apalta vineyard and 7% of Sauvignon Gris.
