Made from 100% Pais at an elevation of 630 feet from vines that are 120 year old. Grown 100% organic, dry-farmed & wild as you see in one of the pictures. 50% of the grapes are de-stemmed the old fashion way on a Zaranda and it goes through carbonic maceration. M+ tannins, bubble gum, strawberries, cherries, dark cherries, red rose petals & violets. The body starts light in body & style but the tannins are slightly sticky on the long finish. Very easy to drink young. 225 cases imported at a retail price of $20.

This is a secret item at the shop... It costs less than 20 dollars but I was only allocated a single six pack for the year. I guess it makes sense for old vine pias grapes that grow wild and hang from trees. Pretty cool stuff! It does a good impression of 2015 vintage Cru Beaujolais; not just carbonic fruit notes but a pinch of that natural wine vibe too. Not too light weight but easy to drink. If you can find a bottle, it's a good time.

Some hipster glou glou on this sunny Saturday. 150 year old un-trellised País vines that grow up into the trees and are hand harvested by ladder. Native yeasts, carbonic, unfiltered. Plenty of young, fruity strawberry banana yoghurt-y character from carbonic maceration and malolactic, fresh slightly underripe raspberries, crushed granite, a bit of dried herbs, and some wild floral character as well. Medium (+) acid, light body, barely any tannin to speak of. Serve at cellar temp. Interesting stuff; like Beaujolais Nouveau on steroids. A great example of the essence of "vin de soif."

For a sub $20 wine, this one is a winner. The varietal originates from the Canary Islands and has been grown in Chile for hundreds of years. 12.5 alcohols makes it a perfect before 5 o'clock glass ;)
