D-12 is homage to the workers of LAN. The name is a reference to "DEPOSIT 12", the stainless steel tank that each vintage holds those wines that according to LAN winery personnel have the most outstanding attributes each year. 2013 is the seventh edition.

Winemaking

Fermented in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature of 25º C in order to maintain aromatic potential and maximize color extraction. Micro-oxygenation and maceration in contact with the lees prior to malolactic fermentation in order to balance the tannins and display a silky mouthfeel.
