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-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.


Vintage
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.


Vineyard
The vineyard is located in the Casablanca Valley, a cool-climate coastal region
close to the Pacific Ocean approximately 47 miles north of Santiago. The proximity to
the sea results in a Mediterranean climate, with pronounced maritime influence. The
cooling sea breezes from the cold Humboldt stream, tempers the heat of the warm,
sunny days and creates cool foggy mornings, ideal for top quality Sauvignon Blanc,
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The soils are clay and sandy soils, which provide good
drainage. Careful pruning ensures the correct balance between canopy and fruit.


Winemaking
Cold pre-fermentation maceration took place at 5°C for four to five days, in order to
extract colour and primary aromas. Fermentation lasted for 10 to 12 days at
temperatures of 26° to 29°C in stainless steel tanks, with selected yeasts. Post
fermentation maceration lasted for five days, then 100% of the wine went through
malolactic conversion. 75% of the wine was aged in French oak barrels for six
months, adding oak complexity to the final blend.


Tasting Note
This elegant Pinot Noir combines aromas of strawberries, black cherries and
raspberries with hints of chocolate and mocha. The palate is round and soft, with
refreshing acidity and balanced fruit.
