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 2019 season was exceptional. Characterised by a cool spring, followed by a warm
summer. The quality was good to very good in most of the valleys, with the grapes
being harvested in a very healthy condition as the warm, dry weather reduced disease
pressure in the vineyard. The wines are rich in flavour, with a clean fruit profile, lovely
fresh balance and delicate aromatics.
Vineyard
The fruit comes from a combination of vineyards located in the Valle de Maule and the
Valle de Colchagua. In the Valle de Maule, the ancient soils are made up of granitic
sandy loam, which is formed from granite from the Coastal Mountains. The soils are full
of quartz and are mineral-rich, which enables the vines to express their full fruit
potential. In the Valle de Colchagua, the alluvial soil offers excellent drainage
properties, oxygenation and deep development of the vine’s roots, which creates
exceptional conditions for the production of high quality wine grapes. Both the Valle de
Maule and Valle de Colchagua benefit from Mediterranean climates, with cold and
rainy winters that contrast with hot and dry summers. The lack of rainfall continues
throughout the growth period, which forces the vines to send their roots deeper into the
soil, in search of water and nutrients, resulting in complexity in the wine.
Winemaking
This wine was vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. Each variety was
vinified separately, with fermentation taking place with wild, native yeasts at
temperatures from 15 to 25°C. An extended skin-contact maceration lasted for 10 days,
to extract colour, aromas and flavours and the wine underwent malolactic conversion
to soften the texture. The wine was aged for 18 months in French Burgundy barrels, of
which 25% were new oak.
Tasting Note
Enticing aromas of forest fruits, cherry, raspberry and mulberry are laced with vanilla
and tobacco nuances through to a rounded palate with a fine tannin structure and a
persistent fruity finish.
