Available:  Only 8 left in stock $34.99
Size: 750.00ml
GWCo makes wines from a series of individual parcels, small lot wines of 8 - 22 barrels that include a series of dry-farmed field-blends with a small posse of farmers whose skills are working the vineyards the old way, the traditional way– ‘originario.’ They work with horse and plough as the families have done for generations. The vineyards are on the old Coastal Range of mountains closer to the Pacific — Chile’s other mountains. Organically farmed, all the wines are made by hand with native yeasts in small tanks, punched down manually and pressed out in a small basket press. This wine is Carignan with smidgens of Mataró and Pais (Mission grape) in the field-blend. “This is characterful, floral, subtle and really elegant while keeping the varietal profile. The tannins are very fine grained, and the palate feels really balanced. This has to be the stuff wine dreams are made of!” – Wine Advocate
