ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Carter Mollenhauer Aurora de Itata Pais

Carter Mollenhauer Aurora de Itata Pais carries ample fragrant iris, wild plum, wild blueberry, and tayberry along the slight palate, hugged with long, fine tannins. The salinity lingers long on the finish. So bright and finessed. Hand harvested, 90% whole clusters trodden by feet and fermented with native yeasts in a very delicate manner. Aging continues in the same concrete tanks without moving for 10 months. Only a minimal amount of SO2 (14 mg/L) only at bottling.

About Carter Mollenhauer

Karine Carter and her husband, Edgar Mollenhauer have a family-run winery in the Maule Valley of Chile where they produce a few small-production wines from local grapes. Their idea is to elevate the reputation of Chilean wine through their hard work farming organically, with minimal intervention in the cellar. Everything is done by hand, with gravity (instead of pumps), free of synthetic chemicals, minimal intervention of the musts, and always unfiltered. Making pure wine that expresses the beautiful terroir where they reside between the Pacific Coast and the Andes Mountains.

Working internationally (California, Barossa, Côtes du Rhône) and throughout Chile (Don Melchor, Seña, and Viña Carmen), Edgar grew the need to rediscover the wines of his native country, so he could enjoy making and drinking the types of wines he discovered around the globe. They began the Carter Mollenhauer project in 2014.
