Chilcas Single Vineyard Pais 2010

Product code: 17CHIC55B2010

Very intense on the nose, with aromas of black pepper and some earthy notes. A very prominent touch of oak from the barrel aging. This wine shows a voluminous palate, tremendous persistence and abundant soft tannins.

Production information

Producer: Chilcas

Individual vineyards, ecological wine practices (including some vineyards certified as organic) and a new winemaker all add up to an incredibly exciting portfolio ranging from Reserva upwards. Chilcas’ approach is to nurture individual parcels and vineyards to create wines with individual character and personality. The wines are quite different from the vast swathes of generic, branded wines to come out of Chile at similar price points.

Production note

The grapes were hand picked into small 10-kg boxes. 100% of the wine was aged for 12 to 14 months in French oak barrels, 25% of them new. The low winter temperatures allowed the wine to stabilise naturally. It was later earth-filtered prior to bottling.
