Producer Note
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-theart 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.
Vintage
The 2020 harvest will never be forgotten. The Covid 19 pandemic hit during harvest,
which followed a very hot season. A warm, dry winter was followed by three days of
freezing temperatures in early October. However, the temperatures warmed up and
the season was characterised by being hot and dry, resulting in a short and early
harvest, yielding concentrated grapes full of flavour.
Vineyard
The grapes come from La Estancia Vineyard in the Curicó Valley, situated at 243
metres above sea-level. The climate is Mediterranean with long, dry summers and
intense sunlight. There is a marked diurnal temperature range, where the cooler
evenings encourage balancing natural acidity and aromatic complexity in the fruit. The
20-year-old vines are grown in alluvium soils, with clay-loam content and the presence
of stone at 80 centimetres depth. The soils are fertile, which allows the vines to express
their full fruit potential. The vines are trained on the Lyre system which enables the air
and sun to circulate through the vine canopy, helping to prevent mildew and keep the
fruit healthy. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated.
Winemaking
'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy' reflecting the fact that this wine was
vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. The grapes were hand-harvested
and brought to the winery in 18 kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. They were
destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C, before being fermented with wild yeasts from
the environment. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 23
to 27°C and lasted for 12 to 15 days. The wine rested on its lees for three months
without any influence of oak to showcase the purity of fruit. The wine was not filtered or
fined before bottling, which may result in a slightly cloudy appearance. Small batches
of wine are bottled on demand during the year.
