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 and rainfall in January maintained the quality of the fruit. 2021
was a lovely balanced vintage, without extremes.
Vineyard
The vines are grown in the Valle de Maule, which stretches for around 60 miles. The
centre of its wine production lies 180 miles south of Santiago at a latitude of 35°S. Long,
warm and dry summers, offer the vines a long, vegetation period. The climate rarely
experiences frost in the spring, which avoids disruption at flowering. 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. The soils
are very old and 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. The vineyard is sustainably
cultivated and the grapes are harvested by hand.
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 Carignan grapes were
brought to the winery in 18 kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. They were
destemmed, pressed and cool macerated for four days, 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, with gentle pump overs to
aerate the wine and promote the extraction of aromas and colour. The wine was not
filtered or fined before bottling, which may result in a slightly cloudy appearance.
Tasting Note
A naturally made, fruity wine with expressive notes of rich plum and ripe black fruits
accompanied by subtle spicy notes of cinnamon, and a touch of star anise. Lovely
fresh palate with fine tannins and subtle earthy tones.
