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.
Vineyard
The grapes come from a single vineyard in the Entre Cordilleras area of the Curicó
Valley, situated at 243 metres 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 which leads to elegant wines. The 37 year old vines are ungrafted, selected
from clones of pre-phylloxera rootstock. Grown in alluvium soils, with clay-loam content
and the presence of stone at 80 centimetres depth, the soils are fertile, which allows
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 according to sustainable agricultural methods in
order to respect the land and its environment.
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 grapes were hand-harvested
and brought 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 took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 13
to 17°C and lasted for 25 days. The wine rested on its lees for three months with gentle
lees work to impart texture.
Tasting Note
Pale and slightly cloudy due to the natural vinification, this Chardonnay offers intense
aromas of banana, apple and pear blended with toasted brioche. The full-bodied, rich
and creamy palate is balanced by a refreshing and fruity finish.
