History of The Lost Barrel 2016

The Lost Barrel is a blend of the best Oveja Negra lots from its estate vineyards in the Maule Valley (124 miles south of Santiago and 12.5 miles from the Andes Mountains range). The wine’s components come from Oveja Negra’s San Rafael vineyard and its Melozal vineyard in Cauquenes. Both vineyards enjoy a Mediterranean climate and are highly influenced by the Andes to the east and the cool Pacific Ocean to the west.
