Tasting Notes

The Lurton family own a boutique winery situated in the Lolol Valley. The estate comprises of 200 hectares and became biodynamic in 2012 in order to eliminate the use of artificial chemical treatments, and establish an organic approach to growing high quality fruit. Clos de Lolol comes exclusively from the Lolol Valley which is a sub division of the Colchagua Valley, the name translates as Vineyard from Lolol. This wine represents the essence of the cool climate of Lolol. It is made up of the best plots of four grape varieties that excel in the valley . Carmenère, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cabernet Franc. They are grown in different parts of the estate that brings out the best of each grape variety and are blended together to give a fine complex wine.

Wine Making Notes

Organically grown grapes with each variety vinified separately. Long fermentation on skins followed by maturation in French oak for around 18 months before final blending and bottling.

About the Producer

The Lurton brothers’ first dealings in Chile date back to 1992, when they entered into an exclusive consulting agreement with `Vina San Pedro`, but it was not until 1997 that they marketed their own wines, under the brand name `Araucano` (the name of Chile’s last indigenous people). It was the year that saw the launch of the first `Gran Araucano` – Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.The Colchagua Valley in Chile is a dreamland for red wine growers. It is here that Francois Lurton bought land that had never before been used to produce wines and began planting vines near the historic village of Lolo. The estate now houses its own boutique winery. The climate in the valley is mild and influenced by its proximity to the ocean, with coastal mists shrouding the entire area in autumn and cooling the berries.
