ProducerNote

Viña Echeverría is a family-run estate winery, owned and managed by the

Echeverría family. Established in 1930, but with an agricultural heritage going back

to the 1700s, Viña Echeverría is as much today, as always, driven by a shared

passion for winemaking and an uncompromising search for excellence. Viña

Echeverría combines nearly a century of viticulture and winemaking experience with

a modern state-of-the-art winery, to produce an extensive collection of quality wines.

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. Viña Echeverría has recently been awarded its

Sustainable Winery status by Wines of Chile, as well as its ISO9000 certification.

Vineyard

The Cabernet Franc grapes come from a single vineyard in the Entre Cordilleras

area of the Curicó Valley, situated at 243 metres above sea-level. The climate is

Mediterranean with long, dry summers and intense sunlight. There is a marked

diurnal temperature range, where the cooler evenings encourage balancing natural

acidity and aromatic complexity in the fruit which leads to elegant wines. The 20

year old vines are ungrafted, selected from clones of pre-phylloxera rootstock. Grown

in alluvium soils, with clay-loam content and the presence of stone at 80 centimetres

depth, the soils are fertile, which allows the vines to express their full fruit potential.

The vines are trained on the Lyre system which allows the air and sun to circulate

through the vine canopy and helps to prevent mildew. The vineyards are cultivated

according to sustainable agricultural methods in order to respect the land and its

environment.

Winemaking

'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy' reflecting the fact that this wine was

vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. The grapes were handharvested and brought to the winery in 18 kilogram boxes to preserve the quality.

They were destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C, before being fermented with

wild yeasts from the environment. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at

temperatures of 13 to 17°C and lasted for 25 days. The wine rested on its lees for

three months without any influence of oak to showcase the purity of fruit. The wine

was not filtered or fined before bottling, which may result in a slightly cloudy

appearance.
