Itatino Cinsault

Viña Dagaz (Dagaz is a Celtic rune that means ‘the beginning of a new path’) was founded in 2015 by renowned winemaker Marco Puyo and Patricio Gomez-Barris. After many years exploring the different areas of Colchagua whilst working on behalf of other wineries Marco felt that the temperate Mediterranean climate and granitic soils of Pumanque offered a unique opportunity to create something more personal. Drawing inspiration from the granitic soils of Côtes du Rhône, Galicia and Rioja, he wanted to create something that authentically represented the terroir. The first vintage in 2016 produced Tierras de Pumanque; a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Carménère and Syrah. Today Dagaz continue to produce high quality wines showing elegant mineral characteristics and good acidity with great structure. The Guarilihue Vineyard is located in the Coelemu area within the ltata Valley, 20 kilometres away from the Pacific Ocean in a straight line, at an altitude of 300 m (984 ft) above sea level. The vineyard is 40 years old and grown in bush vines. The soil is made up of granite, with different degrees of decomposition; it is quite deep and permeable, with an abundance of quartz stones throughout the profile, which allows good root growth. 10 day cold soak at 8°C. Fermentation in concrete oval casks. Post-fermentative maceration of 1 week. Aging for 8 months in concrete oval casks. The aim of using concrete casks was to maintain the freshness, nerve and energy of the wine, as well as the expression of the variety and the ‘terroir’
