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.

Vineyard
The vineyard is located in Molina in the Curicó 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 is ideally suited to
produce healthy vines and grapes. 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 fermented in 25,000 and 15,000 litre stainless steel tanks for seven to
10 days, with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 24 to 27°C. Post
fermentation maceration took place for 10 days at 10°C in order to gently extract the
desired level of colour and flavours. 100% of the wine underwent malolactic conversion,
followed by four to five months in seasoned French oak barrels of third use or more, to
impart subtle complexity and achieve softer tannins.
Tasting Note
With gentle tannins, this flavoursome Carmenère combines intense aromas of
raspberries and cherries with ripe red bell pepper and hints of black pepper. Smooth
and velvety, it is well balanced, with spice and berry fruit mirrored on the palate.
