Located next to El Peral, Las Tizas enjoys the same warmth during the day. Its soils are poorer, with lots of chalky hardpan (Las Tizas means “the chalk”) so we need to work the soils constantly to keep the vineyards growing evenly. Here we harvest Syrah with exquisite dark fruit notes and leathery aromas for our Red Blend, and Carménère that is jammy and ripe to blend with cooler climate grapes from Batuco.
In the low-lying Pencahue Valley.
