Grape Variety: País
Producer: Roberto Henríquez
Region: Bio Bio Valley, Chile
Wild Scale: 3/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic grapes were hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeast. Bottled with no fining or filtration and just a small amount of sulphur.
This Wine: A delightfully light red wine with delicate peppery notes and intense blackberry aromas. Serve slightly chilled. The name refers to an old village near where the vines grow that was inhabited by the native Mapuche people where they defeated the Spanish in a battle. Roberto wants to keep the memory of the native people alive as he has Mapuche ancestry himself.
Notes on the Winemaker: Roberto Henríquez hails from Concepción, Chile but travelled and worked with winemakers in Canada, South Africa and the Loire Valley before returning home to concentrate on the traditional Pipeño methods of winemakers in Chile. He visited us at the bar in early 2020 to share some of his latest magical creations.
