60 hectares / 148 acres planted
Pencahue is a low-lying sector valley surrounded by hills, making it warmer than the typical Maule vineyard, although afternoon ocean breezes cool things down at night. El Peral, with deep clay soils is planted with Cabernet, Syrah, Malbec and Petit Verdot, takes maximum advantage of this warmer temperature to produce wines with opulence and character. We take care to bring out this richness without losing freshness and acidity.
