This wine is named after the majestic volcano that crowns Lauca National Park in the extreme north of Chile (the Arica and Parinacota Region).
This surprising wine has an intense character, freshness and potency with reactive tannins. It originates from a soil that is rich in pyroclastic fragments, the solidified magma of volcanic eruptions and volcanic breccia, rocks that are cemented together by lava.
A blend of 82% Syrah and 18% Carignan.
Intense, shiny violet-red.
Black fruits, olives, slight smokiness and minerality.
Full-bodied, well-structured and elegant with reactive tannins.
