Since the beginning of Koyle, our family wanted to make a wine that would be the maximum representation of the expression of Los Lingues vineyard, at the foot of the Andes Mountains Range, in the Colchagua Valley. This is how in 2009, we launched the first harvest of AUMA, a wine based on Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere, which since its beginning sought to capture our respect for tradition and admiration for innovation, obtaining recognition from the most important critics worldwide, and with an evolution in the bottle that proves to be a world class wine.
Convinced that biodynamic viticulture is the answer to achieve more authentic and respectful wines with the environment, this year we seek to further improve our work in the field. For this reason, the usual visit of our consultant René Piamonte, who travels twice a year to help us with biodynamic preparations, was joined by Bruno Follador, one of the most important compost specialists in the world in the biodynamic movement.
Beginning June, our cellar is already full of wines in barrels, foudres and concrete eggs. The malolactic fermentation is finished in 50% of the wines, and some samples indicate that the wines of this 2019 vintage will reflect a warm year, with outstanding results in the Cabernet Sauvignon of the F4 blocks and Carmenere from “Cuartel G2”.
In a busy press event held in Vinolia, we presented Cuvée Los Lingues 2016 in its Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenère and Syrah varieties. This new line reinforces our commitment to making wines that express the true sense of origin and the importance of the new Denomination of Origin in Los Lingues.
