Very bright and deep ruby red. Red fruits (strawberry, raspberry) in perfect harmony with secondary aromas from the barrel.

The wood perfectly respects the evolution of the aromas of the wine.

A balanced wine that is very subtle with a great aromatic freshness.

A fresh attack, silky, very thin, with elegant and round tannins with long persistence.

A very elegant well balanced wine.

Vik 2012 has characteristics similar to the great wines of Bordeaux, but with more freshness, more fruit, more dynamic with high percision of tannins without excess.

The wine has great structure and body that deliver an exquisite mouthfeel on the palate.

Winemaking

We characterize the wine by adapting each vat to an appropriate vinification process respecting the origin of the grape and the organoleptic definition of each lot. We have the most modern grape selection line in Chile. We harvest the grapes manually up to 3 times per night when the grapes are cooler. Each time we harvest according to the maturity level of the grapes in order to obtain only grapes of excellent quality. Our team takes great care in maintaining the nature of each plot. Our grapes are transported by gravity to the stainless steel vats to maintain the freshness of the fruit and the aromatic precision of the wine. The pre-fermentative maceration is carried out at 8°C for 5 to 6 days and during the alcoholic fermentation we perform up to 5 pump overs daily to extract the color and the tannins. When the fermentation is complete, each lot is tasted, blended together, and returned to barrels until our oenologists Patrick Valette and Christian Vallejo decide its ready to be bottled.
