FROM THE PRODUCER:
Coyam is our signature wine and represents our philosophy and the reason why Emiliana started. Its name means "Chilean Oak" for Mapuche, the original inhabitants of central and southern Chile. Oaks surround the vineyard where this wine is born.
Blend: 48% Syrah, 24% Carmenere, 11% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Mourvedre, 3% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
Color: Intense violet-red.
Bouquet: Aromas of ripe red and black fruits integrated with notes of spice, earth and a hint of vanilla.
Taste: Beautifully balanced and full on the palate. Good structure with soft, round tannins. Elegant expressions of fruit delicately interwoven with oak, mineral, and toffee.
Food Pairing: Serve with roasted red meats, strong cheeses and pasta with spicy sauces. Also marries well with dried fruits.
Region: Colchagua Valley
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.

With 2,000+ acres of estate-owned vineyards over Chile’s most renowned winegrowing valleys, Emiliana offers a portfolio of quality and value at every price point and the maximum expression of Chilean terroir, all in accordance with their philosophy. Emiliana believes that the use of sustainable, organic and biodynamic agriculture is the only way to obtain better balanced, healthier, and more productive vineyards, resulting in higher quality grapes and ultimately better wines. Additionally, Emiliana is at the forefront of social responsibility and honors its commitment to the community as a fair-trade company.
