This wine was grown by a small farmer in the Maule: Nivaldo Morales. It was farmed by hand and horse with traditional methods of dry-farming 70+ year old Carignan vines with vines of Garnacha and Mataró in the field-blend.
It was fermented naturally in small tanks with open-tops. Caps were punched down by hand and pressing was strictly manual. The wine was aged in barrels over two winters— barrels of three or more uses.This wine is a tribute to the resilience of the ploughmen farmers of the Maule who have been stewards of the vines of Sauzal since colonial times.
