'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy', reflecting that this wine was vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. The Viognier grapes were hand harvested and taken to the winery in 18kg boxes to preserve the quality. They were destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C before being fermented with wild yeasts from the environment. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 13 to 17°C and lasted 25 days. The wine then spent three months on its fine lees, imparting texture and complexity. The wine was made without adding any sulphur and was bottled without fining or filtration.

Winery

The grapes come from a single vineyard in the Entre Cordilleras area of the Curico Valley, 243 meters above sea level. The climate is Mediterranean, with long, dry summers and intense sunlight. There is a marked diurnal temperature range, where the cooler evenings encourage balancing natural acidity and aromatic complexity in the fruit, leading to elegant wines. The 35-year-old vines are ungrafted, selected from clones of pre-phylloxera rootstock. Grown in alluvium soils, with clay-loam content and stone at 80 centimetres depth, the soils are fertile, allowing the vines to express their full fruit potential. The vines are trained on the Lyre system, which allows the air and sun to circulate through the vine canopy and helps to prevent mildew. The vineyards are cultivated using sustainable agricultural methods to respect the land and its environment.
