Pais Viejo (‘Old Pais’) is a wine with history. Made with Pais grapes from over 100-year-old Gobelet vines planted in the dry-farmed, coastal region of Maule.
Bright cherry color. A very juicy, fresh, light and honest wine with aromas of strawberry, wildflowers and sour cherry.
Pairs well with fish and pasta, however can also be used as an aperitif.
Best Buy. These centenarian vines are dry farmed in the granitic sands of Chile's coastal hills, their fruit destemmed through the traditional zaranda and then fermented in concrete by ambient yeasts. Its light red flavors fall somewhere between baked strawberry and ripe cherry tomato, while acidity underlines it, feeling brisk and cool. Grounded in the Chilean south, it keeps giving with a pure, rustic appeal.Wine & Spirits October 2021

The pale ruby colored 2020 País Viejo is only 12.5% alcohol and feels primary and juicy, quite fruit-driven and straightforward, refreshing and easy to drink. It's light to medium-bodied. It has moderate acidity and a soft mouthfeel. It was bottled unoaked.Wine Advocate August 2021
