Cinsault 2020 – Soothsayer’s Ferment
Single Ferment Series
Secano Interior – Coelemu
case of 6 bottles


More serious than previous editions, it comes from two vineyards, one in Guarilihue and the other higher up in Guarilihue. There is a tension here that is markedly Guarilihue.

In a Nutshell:

  • Single Ferment Series wines include fruit from more than one parcel or vineyard site and are (co-fermented) ¨in one singular ferment ¨ Sometimes all the fruit does not enter the tank at same time and we simply stack on top of the fermenting tank when the next fruit is ripe — one single ferment one single wine. (two vineyard sites in Portezuelo and Guarilihue)
  • For years we watched as the small farmers with whom we grow the parcel wines were forced to accept prices dictated by the mainstream agro-giants far below their costs for working the earth. So we developed Single Ferments as a dignified means of getting more of their wonderful fruit made into wine for export. The wines are affordable yet we still manage to pay a bonafide price to the farmers.


  • Ancestral farming by hand and horse
  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Open top fermenters. Caps were punched down by hand. Pressing manual.
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank, no nada
  • Pinch of sulfites after Malolactic that normally finishes a full 7 months after harvest with next summer´s heat

Cinsault 2017 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – Reset Ferment – 92 Pts
The 2017 Single Ferment Series Cinsault has an addition to its name on the label, The Reset Ferment, which is a reference to a reset after the terrible fires from the year. This is definitely more serious than previous editions, possibly a result of the severe selection to avoid smoke. It comes from two vineyards, one in Portezuelo (where the berries are very small) and the other one in the vicinity of Guarilihue. There is an aromatic touch here and a light to medium palate with very fine tannins. 3,543 bottles were filled in February 2018.

Dark plums, asphalt, cedar, wet earth and baking spices. This is a full-bodied cinsault that draws out a round and generous palate, through dark cherries and juicy tannins. Drink now.

Cinsault 2016 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – La Vidente Ferment – 93 Pts
“Algunos actores en la industria – me cuenta Mossman- han utilizado el argumento neo-liberal de la oferta y la demanda para pagar un precio no muchas veces justo por fruta deliciosa. Es como robar y dejar una propina. Los vinos Single Ferment Series son nuestra respuesta a esa situación. Al contrario de nuestros vinos de viñedos, Single Ferment Series contienen fruta de más de una parcela, co-fermentados. Es nuestra manera de comprar más fruta a un precio que nos parece justo para contribuir a más productores en el secano interior”, añade. Este cinsault viene de 2 parcelas, una en Hauro y la otra en Guarilihüe, ambas en el Valle del Itata. Y la fruta es deliciosa, fresca, viva. Tiene la suavidad de la cepa, pero también la cascada de sabores a frutas rojas. Uno para beberlo por litros.
