Aristos Barón D’A 2015

Firm, mouth-filling, and round

The Terroir

Barón D’A is sourced from vines planted at an altitude of 1,000 meters in the Andean foothills, surrounded by native vegetation, and condors that fly over the meandering tributaries of the Cachapoal River. The roots of the vines explore among the boulders of the mountains and the deposits of round stones dragged by clear and stormy waters. Here, vines are not only able to absorb nutrients and moisture, but they also thrive. The result is a lively, broad, mouth-filling wine, but one as crisp as the cool nights on the Andean foothills.

2015 Vintage

2015 begins with the attack against the French satirical weekly magazine Charlie Hebdo. The smiles return, however, when the U.S. and Cuba resume diplomatic relations after 54 years. In addition, the Paris Agreement to combat climate change is signed and Chile wins the Copa America soccer tournament for the first time in its history. It is a season of contrasts, with low yields and a very hot summer, but also with significant temperature oscillations between day and night. Baron D’A shines and boasts its concentration and depth of flavors.
