More info

The grapes come from La Estancia Vineyard in the Curicó Valley, situated at 243 metres above sea-level. The climate is Mediterranean with long, dry summers and intense sunlight. There is a marked diurnal temperature range, where the cooler evenings encourage balancing natural acidity and aromatic complexity in the fruit. The 20-year-old vines are grown in alluvium soils, with clay-loam content and the presence of stone at 80 centimetres depth. The soils are fertile, which allows the vines to express their full fruit potential. The vines are trained on the Lyre system which enables the air and sun to circulate through the vine canopy, helping to prevent mildew and keep the fruit healthy. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated.

'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy' reflecting the fact that this wine was vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. The grapes were handharvested and brought to the winery in 18 kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. They were destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C, before being fermented with wild yeasts from the environment. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 23 to 27°C and lasted for 12 to 15 days. The wine rested on its lees for three months without any influence of oak to showcase the purity of fruit. The wine was not filtered or fined before bottling, which may result in a slightly cloudy appearance. Small batches of wine are bottled on demand during the year.

“Intense and deep dark purple colour with herbaceous aromas of ripe red fruits, green pepper and bread crust. This low-intervention natural wine has soft tannins and medium body. It is fresh and fruity, with flavours of raspberry, liquorice and dark chocolate. We recommend drinking this wine slightly chilled.” – Roberto Echeverria

Viña Echeverría

Viña Echeverría is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverría family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverría is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña Echeverría combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce an extensive collection of quality wines. The 'No es Pituko' range represents a radical departure from the rest of the more traditional Echeverría wines, both in look and make-up, being vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. Viña Echeverría has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.
