Never been touched by the human hand, these Pais vines grow wildly in the trees next to the vineyards. 100% organic, 100% dry-farmed, 100% wild.
Vibrant notes of red fruits, cherry, and wild strawberry with floral notes. Fresh on the palate with good balance and a long, rustic finish.
Try it with barbeque and all types of sausage.
The red 2019 País Salvaje (there is also a blanc de noirs version of it) was produced from vines that have grown wild and even up the trees. It fermented with full clusters and indigenous yeasts. It has contained ripeness in a warmer year, keeping the alcohol level at 12%. It has a nose of wild herbs and flowers (it's planted among the native vegetation) and full granite tannins. It fermented in concrete vats and was bottled after six months in concrete. This 2019 shows very good freshness and balance as well as the wild character of the place. 8,000 bottles produced. It was bottled unfiltered in October 2019.The Wine Advocate February 2020
Some of the grapes that are used to make this mould-breaking red are grown in trees and picked by people on ladders. Fermented in concrete with 100% whole bunches, it has wonderful bounce and vibrancy, with old vine concentration and juicy pomegranate and wild strawberry fruit.Tim Atkin March 2020
A País from Mingre, Maule, where the vines climb up into a native forest. Pressed directly with whole bunches, it has a nose of cherry and sweet-brier over a bed of herbs. The tannins are reactive from the stalks while the astringency and moderate freshness make for a relaxed and pleasantly rustic palate.Vinous March 2020
