This product is currently sold out.
Words by the one and only Mike Bennie, from The Wine Front:
White pais grape variety by Bouchon from Maule in Chile. The vines grow wild into local trees and forests, which means some of the harvest takes place on extension ladders. The wine made au naturale. Importer: Pais Imports
This is wonderful drinking, tea-like, tonic-like in a way, has that hazy texture of unfiltered juices, bright acidity to counter it all and a sense of lemon verbena and white flesh stone fruit too. A herbal character also plays a part. A very juicy, lightly chalky texture here. It’s one of those summery feeling wines with substance.
