*Real Southern Terroir
Origin: Litueche, Ucuquer Coast, Rapel Valley, Colchagua, Chile
Producer's Notes: Emerging coastal region Ucuquer in the Colchagua Valley was a discovery for Chilean winemaker Roberto Echeverria, sommelier and wine agent Steven Campbell and Canadian winemaker and "terroir poet" Thomas Bachelder. The Pacific Ocean breezes and cool influence of the adjacent Rapel River make for a complex and well-structured wine. Undergoing barrel fermentation with natural (wild) yeasts and a long elevage in mainly neutral French oak, this wine has a rich, vinous and silky texture and a bright, intense mineral finish.
