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
2021 was characterised as being a milder vintage. Lower average maximum
temperatures were recorded during summer, which took place without the spikes of
heat waves. Due to high spring rainfall, good soil water accumulation provided ample
water supply to the vines. Summer rainfall in January ensured the berries were filled with
juice and maintained the quality of the fruit. Lovely balanced vintage, without
extremes.
Vineyard
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 80 centimetres. Vines are subjected to specific pruning
techniques, irrigation, canopy management and harvesting, which results in grapes of
optimum quality and flavour.
Winemaking
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
conversion. The wine was aged in used French oak barrels for four to five months to
add complexity and achieve softer tannins.
