Winemaker’s The grapes were picked in extremely small, selected parcels (less than one bottle per plant) from high density vines in our Los Lingues Estate in Colchauga. The vines are farmed bio-dynamically in granitic rocky soils, where the roots can bring minerality and complexity from the rocks.  The vineyards are carefully pruned, with almost no irrigation, to express as much as possible the origin.  At optimum ripeness, the grapes are hand-picked in small boxes and brought to the cellar for careful sorting.  Vinification is conducted in small tanks to get the best extraction of aromas, flavors and silky tannins.  After fermentation, the Koyle Royale Malbec is aged in French oak barrels for eighteen months, with no filtration.
