Clos de Luz is located in the Almahue Valley sub region of Chile's Rapel Valley. This region is located 70 miles southeast of Santiago, 40 miles from the Pacific Ocean and 28 miles from the Andes Mountains, giving the vines here a unique combination of mountain and maritime influences. The current owner's great grandfather first planted the Clos de Luz estate in 1892, and it now spreads over 33 hectares of vineyards in granitic soil with quartz components of volcanic origins. The oldest vines now date back to 1945 and are some of the oldest Carménère vineyards in Chile, and probably in the world. The domaine’s vineyards are 100% ungrafted and massal selections. The vineyards are certified sustainable. The grapes are hand-harvested, with strict fruit selection. The fruit is gently extracted, then vinified and raised with minimal interventions. These wines are elegant with depth and complexity but most importantly they showcase the uniqueness of their special origin. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels of varying ages. A small percent of the wine is aged in new 400-liter Sylvain oak barrels.

"Sour cherries, mulberries, tomato leaves, bark and chocolate orange on the nose. Medium-bodied with firm, fine tannins and fresh acidity. Juicy, yet structured, with a savory, flavorful finish, (JS, 92 points)".
