With all of the strength and freshness that comes with the cold Pacific Ocean wind, the gentle yet indomitable granitic clay hillsides of Chequen emerges the whirlwind of this unique and impetuous syrah.

Q Clay begins among the rows in the micro-terroir in Marchigue. The shallow clay and granitic soils formed during the Quaternary period of Chile’s Coastal Range lend special characteristics to the vineyard. Soils with good drainage, high porosity, and moderate fertility in conjunction with the specific morphology and coastally influence climate produce our best wines.
