wine Valdivieso Caballo Loco
Variety:
Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Syrah, Carmenere.
 
Vintage:
the wine does not carry a vintage, it does have a release number. Each edition is unique, containing 50% of the current vintage and 50% of the previous edition, which is kept back especially for blending.
 
Vinification:
  • Grapes were handpicked and carefully selected.
  • Bunches were gently hand de-stemmed.
  • The fermentation is in small open top fementers for 10 days, pushing the cap by hand to ensure a complete and gentle extraction process.
  • Temperature is kept between 28 to 32º C, and there is long post fermentation maceration on skins, of approximately 21 days.
  • The wine was aged for 18 months in French (100%) oak barrels.
Winemaking Philosophy: Based on the solera system, where approximately 50% of the blend is from the previous Caballo Loco. At the end of the barrel maturation period, the current vintage is now blended with the previous edition. Thus the new edition is made, of which 50% is bottled and the remaining 50% is returned to barrel to continue ageing.
