Part of the Alliance Wine Chile range,
Espinos y Cardos explores some of the premium varietals most
adapted to the climate. Drawing on vineyard resources in Casablanca
and Maipo, the range offers stunning value both in terms of
packaging and in quality of wine.
The Central Valley's Mediterranean climate features the warm,
dry summers and cold, rainy winters that vines love.
Even better, the interaction between the effects of the sea and
the Andes result in a growing season that revels in bright sunny
days and temperatures that take a dramatic dip each night.
This causes the broad daily temperature range that wine grapes
need to develop fresh fruit flavours and crisp acidity in white
wines and the ripe tannins, deep colour and high levels of
antioxidants and flavoids in red wines.
