In Chile, a variety that was rediscovered after being thought to be lost worldwide, has become a symbol of the country. Carménère, delicate and elegant variety that requires special temperature and soil conditions in order to guarantee slow ripening of its tannins and docility in its green notes.
Among the hundreds of valleys in Chile, only a few meet such special requirements in order for it to happen. The main one is Maule Valley, and Viña San Pedro went deep into the soul of these lands driven by its project “Origen”, which consists in the tireless search for unique and unrepeatable plots in the country, whose fruit may originate superior wines.
No other plot like the one Viña San Pedro discovered, with peculiar purple soil, is known, weather in Maule Valley or in the rest of Chile. In honour to this soil, both bright and dark, that absorbs the rays of the sun, perpetuating daytime heat to support the perfect ripening of the grapes on clear nights and cold mornings, it is that Viña San Pedro created Tierras Moradas, an unrepeatable, smooth Carménère, of warm and fascinating notes of black fruits and elegant acidity.
Character, courage, identity and mettle are the soul of Tierras Moradas.
