Derived from the meticulous grape selection used in crafting our signature Pulso wine, Petit Pulso exemplifies the exceptional quality lots obtained. This Malbec showcases the fruit, concentration, and versatility unique to the coastal region of Lolol.
Hand-picked and hand-sorted grapes undergo vinification with whole berries, with extended skin contact exceeding 30 days. A portion of Malbec is fermented with stems, ensuring a careful extraction for finely nuanced tannins. The use of native yeasts and precise temperature control during fermentation contribute to the wine’s character. Aging takes place in old barrels, Apollo eggs, and Flexcubes, and the wine is unfined, undergoing gross filtration.
Situated in the coastal region of the Colchagua Valley, Lolol’s Mediterranean climate features 350 mm of concentrated winter rainfall. Summer temperatures are moderated by mountain and ocean breezes, resulting in a small valley surrounded by mountains. The decomposed granite soils, varying in depth based on slope, provide a loamy-clay texture, imparting unique floral aromas. Yield: 8 tons/hectare.
A winter with abundant rainfall primes the soils with ample water. A sunny spring transitions into a warm summer with a peak in February, followed by a slow and uniform ripening season. These conditions yield well-balanced grapes with a delicate and elegant structure, excellent acidity, and a nose rich in blueberries, figs, and hints of violets. Harvest date: March 17th – 24th. Composition: 94% Malbec – 6% Cabernet Franc.
