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 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
Whole clusters were pressed in a pneumatic press, followed by a static sedimentation
for 24 to 36 hours at 8 to 10°C. Half the must was fermented in 225 litre French oak
barrels for 15 days at temperatures of 18 to 20°C; while the remaining half was
fermented in stainless steel tanks at 14-17°C for 25 days, with selected yeasts. Partial
malolactic conversion took place. The wine was aged on its fine lees in 225 litre French
oak barrels, for 12 months.
Tasting Note
This charming and elegant Chardonnay has intense primary aromas of apricots and
peaches, complemented by notes of vanilla and toffee. Rich yet fresh on the palate, it
has a balancing acidity and flavours of dried fruit and pineapple, which carry through
to a long finish.
