Tasting Notes

The wine is light in color with bright notes of raspberry, cherry, and rose petals that leads into underlying hints of dried herbs and a wild, rustic quality. The palate has plum and raspberry notes, earthy touches of saddle, and a hint of campfire.  

WINE INFORMATION

Pedro Parra was born in Concepción, Chile, near Bio Bio and Itata, and he is raising his family there now. Pedro holds a PhD in terroir from the Paris Center of Agriculture, with six years’ experience in French terroirs. As a highly respected consultant working in several countries and terroirs (Chile, Argentina, USA, Italy, Canada, France, Armenia), Pedro brings an open mind and vision to winemakers and viticulturists alike. Pedro has been described as the leading figure of the “New Chile” movement by the international press, in part because of his constant endeavor to bring a new vision to the Chilean wine industry, searching for quality terroirs and developing new plantings throughout the country.

Itata is a small, remote wine region in the Bio Bio area of southern Chile. Weather is coastal, cool, and cloudy with enough rain to make dry farming possible.

The pure País 2020 Vinista was produced with grapes from three ancient vineyards, two with volcanic soils in Ñipas and a third one on red granite from Guarilihue. The grapes fermented with their natural yeasts with 100% full clusters, and the wine matured in oak and concrete vats for 10 months.
