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 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 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.

Winemaking
The grapes were carefully selected before being crushed, destemmed and chilled to 8°C. Cold skin maceration took place for eight hours to extract the delicate pale pink colour. Gentle pneumatic pressing was followed by 24 to 36 hours of sedimentation at 8°C. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in temperature controlled tanks at 13 to 18°C and lasted for 25 days. Made in an unoaked style to retain the purity of fruit.
