Echeverría 'No es Pituko' Chardonnay 2020

ENPCH20

New product

'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy' reflecting the fact that the wine was vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. Pale and slightly cloudy due to the natural vinification, it offers intense aromas of banana, apple and pear blended with toasted brioche. The full-bodied, rich and creamy palate is balanced by a refreshing and fruity finish.

More info

The grapes come from a single vineyard in the Entre Cordilleras area of 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 which leads to elegant wines. The 37 year old vines are ungrafted, selected from clones of pre-phylloxera rootstock. 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 allows the air and sun to circulate through the vine canopy and helps to prevent mildew. The vineyards are cultivated according to sustainable agricultural methods in order to respect the land and its environment.

The grapes were handharvested and brought to the winery in 18kg 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 13 to 17°C and lasted for 25 days. The wine rested on its lees for three months with gentle lees work to impart texture.
