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.

Vintage

The 2020 harvest will never be forgotten. The Covid 19 pandemic hit during harvest,

which followed a very hot season. A warm, dry winter was followed by three days of

freezing temperatures in early October. However, the temperatures warmed up and

the season was characterised by being hot and dry, resulting in a short and early

harvest, yielding concentrated grapes full of flavour.

Vineyard

The grapes come from La Estancia Vineyard in 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.

The 20-year-old vines are 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

enables the air and sun to circulate through the vine canopy, helping to prevent

mildew and keep the fruit healthy. The vineyards are sustainably cultivated.

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 23 to 27°C and lasted for 12 to 15 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. Small batches of wine are bottled on demand during the year.

The lovely floral Gewurztraminer aroma is true to the variety, with classic rose petal and lychees, without being heavy or over the top. This Gewurztraminer is clean, crisp and elegantly poised with a delightfully delicate crackle on the palate. The mouth filling mid palate fades gently to a zippy fresh finish.
