For years, the hillsides of Mt. Paidahuen have been a meeting ground for Aconcagua Valley inhabitants. Today, these slopes are home to the In Situ vineyard, where enigmatic rock drawings from ages past remain intact among native plant life and grapevines, symbolizing a union between past and present Aconcagua. The In Situ philosophy is to create wines that reflect the unique character of the Aconcagua Valley. Through careful winemaking techniques, they strive to capture the full expression of the vineyard’s terroir in every bottle.
Winemaker Horacio Vicente has chosen the best plots from the vineyards to capture their most distinctive aromas. Grapes are handpicked and a blend of 95% Carmenère and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel (28ºC), it was macerated for 18 days and then aged in 50% French and 50% American 225-litre oak barrels for 12 months. After the bottling this wine was aged for at least 3 additional months before release.
Intense red in colour with violet highlights. Aromas of red fruit, spices, smoke and forest tones lead to a palate that’s soft and fruity with ripe tannins, a silky texture and great elegance.
