Pipeño Pais 2017 1L
Region: Bio Bio, Chile
Style: Fruity and juicy red
1 Liter of pure Joy
The nose is incredibly aromatic; peppery with lots of ripe purple plum, blackberry, raspberry, and a touch of Mezcal like smokiness. The palate has a nice concentration and weight with subtle tannins and lots of acidity making this a great option with or without food. With its easy-drinking nature and pure red fruit flavours, this Liter sized bottle is ideal for your next dinner or party. Serve slightly chilled.
The 'pipa' in pipeño refers to an old Chilean tradition of making large batches of wine in open-top barrels and then distributing this wine by the jug-full, right from the barrel, throughout the neighbourhood; a wine of, and for the community. With País vines at least 250 years old, winemaker Manuel Moraga Gutierrez continues the legacy of his ancestors. He uses a short maceration to keep this wine juicy and supremely drinkable.
