PRODUCER NOTE
Viña Echeverría is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the Echeverría family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back to the 1700s, Viña Echeverría is as much today, as always, driven by a shared passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña Echeverría combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce an extensive collection of quality wines. The ‘No es Pituko’ range represents a radical departure from the rest of the more traditional Echeverría wines, both in look and make-up, being vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. Viña Echeverría has recently been awarded its Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.

VINTAGE
The 2019 season was characterised by a lack of rain during the spring, followed by hot temperatures during the summer. This resulted in low yields compared to previous years, due to the effects of drought and water stress. The quality was good to very good in most of the valleys, with the grapes being harvested in a very healthy condition as the warm, dry weather reduced disease pressure in the vineyard. The wines are rich in flavour with good balance and delicate aromatics.

VINEYARD
The grapes were cultivated in the Central Valley (Entre Cordillera). Selected from several vineyards within the Central region, including the Curico, Maule and Colchagua Valleys, each terroir imparted complexity to the resulting wine. The climate in this region is Mediterranean with a long, dry summer season and intense sunlight. There is a marked diurnal temperature range and this difference between day and night temperatures encourages the concentration of flavours in the berries while retaining natural freshness and vibrant aromas.

WINEMAKING
The grapes were fermented to dryness in stainless steel tanks for seven to 10 days at controlled temperatures of between 25 to 28°C with selected and native yeasts. 100% underwent malolactic conversion, before being aged in 225 litre used French oak barrels for four to five months to add complexity and to achieve softer tannins.

TASTING NOTE
Vibrant fruity aromas of cherries and strawberries combine with attractive blackberry notes, black pepper and dried fruit. Soft and juicy on the palate showing a beautifully balanced acidity which lengthens the finish.

GRAPE
Merlot 95%, Carmenère 5%.
