About Viña Echeverria No es Pituko Carignan

Viña Echeverria No es Pituko Carignan is a naturally made, fruity wine with expressive notes of rich plum and ripe black fruits accompanied by subtle spicy notes of cinnamon, and a touch of star anise. Lovely fresh palate with fine tannins and subtle earthy tones.

The Carignan grapes were brought to the winery in 18-kilogram boxes to preserve the quality. They were destemmed, pressed and cool macerated for four days, before being fermented with wild yeasts from the environment. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 23 to 27°C and lasted for 12 to 15 days, with gentle pump overs to aerate the wine and promote the extraction of aromas and color. The wine was not filtered or fined before bottling, which may result in a slightly cloudy appearance.

About Viña Echeverria

Active in Chilean agriculture, grape growing, and winemaking since 1740, the Echeverria family established their current vineyards and winery in 1923 on the outskirts of Molina, a town in the Curicó Valley. Here, they grow grapes from French pre-phylloxera rootstocks, on their 80 ha of vineyards.

Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London.

Eventually, the family started purchasing grapes, to complement and build complexity to their wines. “We realized that to succeed and be different, we needed to be open,” says Roberto Echeverria, the Technical Director and Chief Winemaker, whose first solo vintage appeared on the market in 2001. With sustainable practices in the vineyard, Echevarria produces wine for almost every palate, while embracing a philosophy that’s based on consistency.

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.
