Viticultural notes

"IMAGINADOR is a wine that was in my imagination many years ago, when I discovered the great potential of Itata terroir. This wine comes from 4 different growers I source, all in the upper part of the hills, over granitic soils. All the sites were planted more than 200 years ago, and so, the vineyard share a long history. All blocks are suposed to be Cinsault, but because of the history they all are Cinsault field blends with Muscat, Semillon, Carignan and Pais. They are all harvest and vinified together" Pedro Parra

Winemaking notes

Native yeast, very low extraction by soft and short pumping over. Spontaneous malolactic fermentation, no carbonic. The wine is lightly filtrated.

Luis Gutiérrez, April 2017

(...) It was kept in concrete and stainless steel tanks until bottling in March 2016. It has a really fresh, floral nose with aromas of acid strawberries, a touch of raspberry leaves and plenty of red juicy fruit such as watermelon and pomegranate... It's very drinkable and fresh, with unnoticeable tannins. A red of thirst, and a very good one at that!
