Vineyards The vineyard is located at the Los Robles Estate, Colchagua, Chile. The vines are grown in soil consisting of clay and sand.
Winemaking Hand harvested between April-May, the certified biodynamic grapes undergo a double-selection process and are quality sorted using a gravity-flow system. Vinification begins with a 4-7 day cold-soak followed by alcoholic fermentation with selected yeasts and regular pumpovers in stainless steel tanks with a maceration period between 20-25 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally in French oak barrels. Coyam is largely unfiltered and aged for 13 months in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels.
