The influence of the Pacific Ocean on our Tapihue vineyard, especially the Humboldt Current (an Antarctic current that flows up the Chilean coast, moderating the temperatures), results in a blanket of mist at dawn and fresh breezes from midday onwards, which allow the freshness and acidity of the grapes to be maintained.
The Tapihue vineyard is characterised by its graphitic soil, with a loamy-clayey texture and little organic matter. In some parts – where our Pinot Noir vines are planted – we can find the presence of quartz, which provides a unique mineral quality that benefits the slow ripening of the fruit.
