Pipeno Tinto A Los Vinateros Bravos 1 Litre, natural wine from Chile, Pais, Cinsault, low sulphites, light and crunchy, a little bit wild! The grapes for this wine come from ancient, low yielding Pais vines grown on basaltic soils. They are hand-harvested and then fermented with native yeasts in concrete tanks and pressed in a basket press. They are then aged for around 14 months in large barrels made from native Rauli wood. There is a distinct characteristic of the wild grass that surrounds the vineyard, plenty of cruncy red fruits and a little bit of cassis. Unlike most Chilean wines, it is fresh and delicate, and has a lovely structure created by fine grained tanning. The finish is long with a distinctive mineral character which smacks of the volcanic soils from whence this wine hails.
