Pipeño - the Chilean name for the oldest grape varietal in South America, the Pais, or Mission, grape.

Smells of light roasted cherries - and fresh leather.

This is a uniquely light wine, with heavy handed flavours - leather, farm, forest, mint, slate, deep tannins, a complex, evolving wine, and it is just a pup!
A long lingering peppercorn finish, with the strong mandarin peel acid undertones,
Yum.
With its gaining popularity, I look forward to trying other producers take on this, and the terroir they choose. Chile is such a long country with so many micro climates!
