From 100 year old organically farmed Chasselas vines from Itata, known in the area as Corinto. Fermented on the skins for 3 weeks and aged on lees in old oak.
Roberto Henriquez is part of the very small-scale, zero-input agriculture and winemaking community of the Old South: the old farmers work traditionally, having never used chemicals. However nowadays, the Chilean culture doesn’t pay much importance to historic winemaking, and he felt he had to do something to try and keep tradition alive. He now farms 7ha spread across 4 parcels which are close together in the mountains near Cordillera de Nahuelbuta in the Bio-Bio region of Chile. Some of the vines here are over 200 years old! Roberto also buys grapes from friends close to Nacimento and Itata.
