Testing for volatile acidity at Viña Terranoble in Región del Maule, Chile.
Terranoble in the Maule Valley made their first vintage in 1994. It is a relatively small winery, around 100 hectares, and the philosophy is to find the right terroir for each grape variety. The yields are small; the grapes are picked by hand and the oak is used to balance the wine, not to overpower it. Their “star” variety is Carmenère, which shows a lovely spicy and fruity nose and a good balance and length.
