An eighth-generation producer who has been handed the reigns to the family farm and winery at the tender age of 19. This is pais off volcanic soils, right on the banks of the Bio-Bio River. Vines are around 250-years-old. Fermented in the family's original, huge beechwood vats, somewhere over 150 years old.
Beautiful, floral aromas, lavender, an almost cassis-like lift, but not dense, faint game meat, brambles. The palate is soft but grips and grips. You'll find transparent, sour-sweet red berry juiciness up front, licks of sage and fennel, then the dry drawl of pumice and botanicals. This is such a compelling wine. Wonderful drinking. - WineFront.com.au
