Pais 2016 – Second Salvo Ferment
Single Ferment Series
Secano Interior – Cauquenes
1 Magnum 1,5 Lts

$25,000

A rarity I had kicking about the house. I thought this sort of thing might make ecommerce more fun and rewarding. Note: we bottle a few dozen magnums of many wines for charity auctions etcetera. This one got put away in our private cellar and forgotten about… “Super fresh and clean, softer, more floral, less rustic and with more finesse than the previous vintages.”    – LG 

No hay stock

Technical Sheet

“The wine is super fresh and clean and is also softer, more floral, less rustic and with

more finesse than the previous vintages.”    – LG   

Alcohol: 13

pH  3,43
Acidez:  4.5
Azúcar residual: 1,34

6 magnums filled.

In a nutshell:

  • Single Ferment Series wines include fruit from more than one parcel or vineyard site and are (co-fermented) ¨in one single 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.
  • For years we watched as the small farmers with whom we grow the parcel wines were forced to accept prices fixed [illegally] by 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 (21 usd) yet we still manage to pay a bonafide price to the farmers.

the Vintage:  In 2016 was a great vintage for wines of tension and elegance

Pais 2016 Single Ferment Secano Interior Cauquenes 2016  – Second Salvo Ferment – 91 Pts
I also tasted the second version of the single ferment País, the 2016 País. There is more freshness here, and it’s not only the year. In this second ferment they increased the amount of fruit from Truquilemu. There is a note of pencil lead, unusual acidity for País and very good freshness– 9,600 bottles filled. Luis Gutierrez

Wine Advocate Robert Parker , #239  Oct 2018 Pais 2017 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo 2017  – 215 BC Ferment – 92 Pts
The name of the País bottling changes with each vintage, and the one from 2017 is the 2017 País 215 BC Ferment, which refers to the time País arrived “before Cabernet” (215 years before!). 2017 was the year of the terrible fires in Chile, and many vineyards were affected; in many cases, the vineyards acted as fire breaks with their greenness. In this case, the grapes were too green when the fire occurred, and as a result, there are no traces of smoke here. The wines in the Ferment series are co-fermentations of grapes from different vineyards, and the vineyards that were used for this wine are different—both are from Portezuelo and were harvested earlier because of the heat of the year and the fires. The wine is super fresh and clean and is also softer, more floral, less rustic and with more finesse than the 2015 I tasted next to it. The quality of the tannins is superb. 7,872 bottles were filled in December 2017.

Your virtual harvest continues with a ride in Itat Your virtual harvest continues with a ride in Itata / Guarilihue from a few days ago. Your trusted carrier Raoul will again take you across, and notice the berry size much bigger here yes? (This is Cargadora or Cinsault you guessed it!) You may ask why is Raoul in Itata? He is part of the team / posse who picks each and everyday with us. Our own pickers insure only the best fruit gets on the truck. And This year it has meant less contact between people and safer conditions. The team from Puico-Sauzal have been working with minimal interaction (and social distancing) with others this year to prevent risk. #gwcoharvest2020 #gwcocinsault #gwcosingleferments
