Pais Salvaje Blanco 2019
WINE OVERVIEW

Never been touched by the human hand, these Pais vines grow wildly in the trees next to the vineyards. White Pais clusters were discovered in these wild vines and vinified separately from the red clusters. Pais Salvaje blanco was born.

Tasting Notes

This is a wine of character. Copper yellow in color with fruity aromas of green apple and pear. In the mouth it is very juicy and fresh, with a long finish.

Food Pairing

Enjoy with grilled fish, light sauced pasta or a fresh summer salad.

Tech Details

Pais Salvaje blanco is a wine born from a second wild discovery within J Bouchon’s Pais ‘jungle’ vines. After their first harvest of Pais Salvaje red in 2015, the 2016 harvest began and they realized that certain clusters of these wild vines were much lighter in color than others. They decided to harvest and vinify these lighter clusters separately. The wine is fermented and aged for 6 months in an ancient tinaja (clay amphora) with native yeast with no filtration.
