DescriptionThe Medalla Real collection represents the tremendous diversity and wealth of Chile's terroirs, influenced by the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains. Grapes for Santa Rita's Medalla Real wines are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness from the estate's best and oldest vineyards. Intense fruit and a judicious use of French oak result in complex and concentrated wines that are simultaneously elegant and classical in style. Santa Rita's winemakers and viticulturists have carefully chosen the best sectors of the country's most distinct wine regions in order to express the wide range of terroirs and capture the full potential and unique character of each variety.
VinificationFermented at temperatures ranging from 77-82°F. Maceration time varies according to the character of the harvest.
