2020 Secano Interior Yumbel Pipeño Pais - Sur, Chile (750ml)
|Availability:||In stock (45)|
Agricola Yumbel Estacion is a project of Mauricio Gonzalez Carreño, a winemaker working to support the resurgence of authentic Chilean viticulture, which had been largely forgotten for more than a quarter of a century due to the prevalence of large commercial wineries in the country. Mauricio uses biodynamic practices in both the vineyard and winery, which operates without electricity. This wine is 100% País that ferments and ages in pipas, old barrels made from Raulí, a native beechwood that grows in the Biobío Valley. Bright and lively with tart fruit and dried herbs on the nose, the palate is juicy, with crunchy red fruit, blood orange, and grippy tannins. Serve with a slight chill alongside fried oyster mushrooms and aioli or a Chilean thin-sliced steak sandwich with chimichurri and avocado.
