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.
2018 was characterised by a lack of rainfall. Nevertheless, it was a good vintage for quality. Frost occurred in spring, along with a large thermal oscillation retaining refreshing acidity. A dry, slow ripening season allowed good flavour accumulation, with low disease pressure. No significant rainfall took place at harvesting, resulting in grapes with excellent varietal characteristic, with some slightly lower alcohol levels.
The vineyards are situated in the Curicó Valley and the rows are planted in an eastwesterly direction, to maximise the sun's exposure. Working with a model of micro viticulture, each plot of no more than half a hectare, is identified according to its terroir and microclimate, and planted accordingly. The soils are alluvial in origin, clay loam; with the presence of stone at 80cm. Vines are subjected to specific pruning techniques, irrigation, canopy management and harvesting, which results in grapes of optimum quality and flavour.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks for seven to 10 days at controlled temperatures of 25 to 28°C with selected yeasts. Extended maceration took place for an additional for 10 days at 10°C imparting colour, flavour and fine tannins. Fermentation finished without skin contact. 100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in used French oak barrels for four to five months to add complexity and achieve softer tannins.
