Product Description

The Outer Limits wines were born out of Aurelio Montes’ desire to push Chilean viticulture in a new direction. His Cinsault vineyards are located in the Bularco sector of the Itata Valley in southern Chile. It was here that the first vines were planted nearly 500 years ago. The soils are of granitic origin and present deep red clay and a high quartz content. They also have a high water retention and organic matter content. Upon arrival in the cellars the fruit was crushed and pressed before fermentation took place in open-top fermenters. The wine was then aged in third-use barrels for four months and lightly filtered prior to bottling.
