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 characterised by a lack of rain during the spring, followed by hot
temperatures during the summer. This resulted in low yields compared to previous
years, due to the effects of drought and water stress. 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 good balance and delicate aromatics.
Vineyard
The vineyard is located in Molina in the Curico Valley at an altitude of 243 metres. It is
situated on the 35th parallel south, between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific
Ocean. Intense sunshine is tempered by cooling sea breezes, allowing the grapes to
achieve outstanding fruit aromas and exceptional colour concentration. The warm dry
days and cold nights encourage a long growing season, which provides the perfect
conditions for bold yet elegant red wines, especially the regional star, Cabernet
Sauvignon. 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.
Grapes are cultivated using specific pruning methods, irrigation, canopy management
and harvesting, which results in grapes of optimum quality and flavour. The fertile soils
are alluvial in origin, with clay loam and stone at 80cm.
Winemaking
The grapes were 100% hand harvested into 18 kilogram boxes, carefully selected and
then fermented to dryness in 25,000 litre stainless steel tanks. Fermentation took place
with selected yeasts and lasted for seven to 10 days at controlled temperatures of
between 25 to 28°C. Extended skin maceration lasted for additional six to eight days,
followed by 100% malolactic conversion. The wine was matured in 225 litre French oak
barrels of second and third use for a period of 10 to 12 months.
Tasting Note
Intense aromas of red cherries and black pepper are underpinned by a smoky, earthy
background. On the palate it shows mellow, fresh tannins and lingering notes of
eucalyptus, with a delicious and persistent finish.
