Mauricio found this vineyard in southern Chile after it had been abandoned for over 40 years. He may be a young winemaker but his vines – which grow as tall as apple trees – are anywhere between 100-250 years old, and the native beechwood barrels he leabes open to oxygen are over 100 years old. There is a softness to this wine while it still retains some rough edges – like good bread. There’s also some chewy rhubarb, hints of duck sausage and a clean mineral finish.
