The wine is made of grapes from four vineyards in Maipo (85%). The pronounced mineral and earthy notes come from Maipo region harvests. The spicier notes are from Isla de Maipo, while the fresher and fruitier characters come from the regions close to the coast in Cuncumen. In addition, the wine contains 14% Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo Alto, to bring out the tannins and give balance to the natural smoothness of the Carménère.

The grapes were harvested from the end of April to the end of May. Once in the winery, the fermentation process began immediately at a high temperature range, at which point an intensive extraction process was applied during the first phase. The temperature was later reduced until fermentation was complete. The wine was kept for another couple of days before eventually being separated and the malolactic fermentation began.

Aging lasted for about six months, in which 15% of the wine was placed in barrels, and another proportion in a tank with French, American or Hungarian oak staves. Another 20% or so was aged in tanks to guarantee the wine a fresh and fruity component. Once the wines had matured, they were mixed together and later bottled.
