Aristos Duque D’A 2015

Power, intensity, and elegance

The Terroir

Duque D’A is sourced from vines planted at 1,000 meters of altitude in the foothills of the Andes, on terraces formed in a riverbed that meanders through the mountains and begins its descent through the Cachapoal valley towards the cold waters of the Pacific Ocean. The roots of its red varieties grow deep in alluvial soils, with deposits of sand and clay that build a very permeable support. The vines explore and capture a remarkable mineral character that radiates throughout in the wine.

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. Duque D’A shows all its power, without compromising its freshness and gracefulness.
