VINOS LABERINTO

Campo Lindo
Ribera Sur Lago Colbún
Km. 14 Colbún

The climate is characteristic of the high altitudes in the Andes Mountains, with high luminosity. Cool days and very cold nights allow for high acidity and a slow ripening of the fruit. The low humidity level at this altitude in the valley naturally allows for a very healthy development of the plant and its clusters, avoiding the need to apply chemical products that are harmful to both humans and the environment.

WitHin the property, we can recognize different Geographical compoNents and eCosyStems.

Different types of soils and microclimates, from which we have sought to benefit in order to enhance the different grape varieties, their varying needs and distinct qualities.

LAGO
COLBÚN

-35.684943, -71.264322

Lake Colbún is located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, between the municipalities of San Clemente and Colbún. It is an artificial reservoir with a surface area of 57km2 whose construction began in 1980 and ended in 1985. The purpose of its construction is to retain the waters of the Maule River to be used in hydroelectric power plants, as well as for agricultural irrigation. It has a capacity of 1.49 million m3, which makes it the largest artificial reservoir in Chile and the largest lake in the central zone of the country.

SECTOR
MAITÉN

-35.702975, -71.261018

In the highest part of the hill there is a sector with northern exposure, facing the lake. It is the section with the steepest slope, so, in combination with its orientation, it is the most exposed to the sun. The soils are more granitic, with strong participation of the Andean Cordillera bedrock. Here you can find a great diversity of our red varietals: Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Sauvignon, País, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

SECTOR
QUILLAY

-35.703106, -71.263760

At the heart of the labyrinthine vineyard, we find a sector containing a hill with western and southern exposure, which is consequently a little cooler. This is a section of steeper slopes, with differing orientations in the planting curves.

The soils are volcanic with a lot of ash, after sedimenting for millions of years due to the Puelche winds that blow from the Andes Mountains. The majority of our Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling can be found here.

SECTOR
PEUMO

-35.707328, -71.258882

Located to the southeast, in the most secluded sector of the estate, is this shadier and cooler section with southwest exposure. Here you will find our Pinot Noir, which benefits from the unique characteristics of this location.

The vineyard is planted through the combination of wide spacing (3.20 m) and two rows (1.60 m apart).  The former allows for better soil management and the involvement of greater biodiversity, while high density plantings allow for a low harvest yield of one kilo per plant.

SECTOR
BOLDO

-35.699449, -71.268665

Near the house and the winery our Merlot plus a small block of Cabernet Sauvignon are planted. It is a sector containing gentle hillsides with northern exposure, giving these vineyards greater warmth.

These soils are characterized mainly by a loamy texture, corresponding to an optimal combination of clay and silt.

Built in 1996 for our first harvest, it was erected protruding from the surface so as to operate alongside gravity, and was then expanded in 2017 to facilitate better working of the wines. It has a tank room, bottle storage, a laboratory, offices and a tasting room.

For the vinification process, we have 28 tanks, 20 stainless steel tanks ranging from 800 to 5200 liters, and 8 concrete tanks ranging from 3500 to 8500 liters. We also have 6 clay vats of 600 liters each.

The barrel and bottle cellar is located in the hillside below the vineyards themselves, which allows us to naturally maintain the right temperature for storing and aging the wine. Inside offers a consistent temperature between 13 and 16 degrees, where 80 barrels of 400 liters are stored.
