Cinsault 2018
Single Ferment Series
Secano Interior – Portezuelo
Soothsayer´s Ferment

Single Ferment Series wines contain grapes from more than one vineyard, co-fermented (stacked on top of one another when each becomes ripe) to make one wine with one single fermentation—hence the name.

Acidity  (g / l) 5,75
pH 3,36
Residual Sugar (g / l) 1,94
Alcohol (% vol) 13.8

2960 bottles filled

10 Barrels Cinsault

 

The Vineyards:

- two vineyard sites in Portezuelo and Guarilihue 60+ years old
- 1,5 hectares + 4 hectares
- old bush-head vines
- granitic soils with lots of quartz
- 1,5 kg per plant / 4,5oo -  kgs per hectare

In a Nutshell:

  • For years we watched as the small farmers with whom we grow the parcel wines were forced to accept prices dictated by the mainstream 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 yet we still manage to pay a bonafide price to the farmers.
  • Single Ferment Series wines include fruit from more than one parcel or vineyard site and are (co-fermented) ¨in one singular 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. (two vineyard sites in Portezuelo and Guarilihue)

Winemaking:

  • Ancestral farming by hand and horse
  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Open top fermenters. Caps were punched down by hand. Pressing manual.
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank

¿How many lots do you make of this wine? Just one each vintage.

T a s t i n g   N o t e s

House note:

Dark plums, wet earth, cedar and baking spices. This is a full-bodied cinsault that draws out a round and generous palate, through dark cherries and juicy tannins. Heaps of fruit but with a completely different architecture – this is not a glou glou terrace wine and it does not have carbonic maceration.

Ageability

2018 vintage will age 5-6 years, but the wine is made to be enojoyed beginning today upon release in 2020

Perspective: Our 2015 is beginning to display some tertiary notes and demonstrate that Cinsault can have the architectural structure to improve over several years.

Best drinking

2020-2025

Cinsault 2018 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – Soothsayer Ferment – 94 Pts
Para Soothsayers Single Ferment Series se seleccionan dos parcelas en Itata, una en Portezuelo y la otra en Guarilihue. El vino se cría por un año en barricas y muestra cómo el cinsault tiene una capacidad impresionante para mostrar estructura, para crear un cuerpo construido a partir de taninos que se perciben firmes y severos, penetrantes y algo rústicos. Una textura para nada habitual en esta cepa, más relacionada con vinos fáciles y frutales. Este es frutal, pero con una arquitectura completamente distinta, hecha de concreto.

Cinsault 2018 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – Reset Ferment – 92+ Pts
Winemaker Derek Mossman told me the 2018 Cinsault The Soothsayers Ferment from their Single Ferment Series was particularly interesting as it was more ambitious, but I find it too rustic and dark, with an unusual animal twist. The fruit gravitates toward the darker side of the spectrum, and it resembles a Cariñena more than a Cinsault. The palate has some powdery tannins and a dusty texture. To be honest, it got me scratching my head; and while it’s not bad, it doesn’t fit the idea I had about this wine or the style of any previous vintage. I left the wine in the glass for a good couple of hours, and it transformed completely: that blackness disappeared, the animal-like aromas disappeared and the wine was completely different! The spark was back, the red fruit emerged and the granite resurfaced in the texture. What a transformation. Sometimes patience gets paid back. This is a completely different expression of Cinsault—more serious, more powerful. Decant for a couple of hours if it shows funny when you open it. 2,960 bottles produced. It was bottled in February 2019.

Cinsault 2017 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – Reset Ferment – 92 Pts
The 2017 Single Ferment Series Cinsault has an addition to its name on the label, The Reset Ferment, which is a reference to a reset after the terrible fires from the year. This is definitely more serious than previous editions, possibly a result of the severe selection to avoid smoke. It comes from two vineyards, one in Portezuelo (where the berries are very small) and the other one in the vicinity of Guarilihue. There is an aromatic touch here and a light to medium palate with very fine tannins. 3,543 bottles were filled in February 2018.

Cinsault 2016 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – La Vidente Ferment – 93 Pts
"Algunos actores en la industria - me cuenta Mossman- han utilizado el argumento neo-liberal de la oferta y la demanda para pagar un precio no muchas veces justo por fruta deliciosa. Es como robar y dejar una propina. Los vinos Single Ferment Series son nuestra respuesta a esa situación. Al contrario de nuestros vinos de viñedos, Single Ferment Series contienen fruta de más de una parcela, co-fermentados. Es nuestra manera de comprar más fruta a un precio que nos parece justo para contribuir a más productores en el secano interior", añade. Este cinsault viene de 2 parcelas, una en Hauro y la otra en Guarilihüe, ambas en el Valle del Itata. Y la fruta es deliciosa, fresca, viva. Tiene la suavidad de la cepa, pero también la cascada de sabores a frutas rojas. Uno para beberlo por litros.

1 Pais 2017
Single Ferment Series
Secano Interior – Portezuelo
215 BC Ferment

“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: 12,9
pH  3,57
Acidez:  4.1
Azúcar residual: 1,59

7872 bottles filled. (23 barrels Pais)

In a nutshell:

  • Pais from Portezuelo is called 2015 BC ferment ie 215 yrs before Cabernet. There was a bodega making Pais in Portezuelo in 1548. Cab Sauv was documented for the first time in 1763 near Bordeaux and the difference being 215. The name came to us during a talk in London (Imbibe Live Seminar) called “Chile before Cabernet”.
  • 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 2017 when we had devastating bushfires in Chile and a clear and present pattern emerged: the only firebreaks that stopped the spread of the flames were the small green cultivated farms of the age-old vignerons.

Denominación de Origen  Secano Interior – Portezuelo

Color: Yes

Tipo de uva: Pais from two farms

Elaboración:

  • Ancestral farming by hand and horse
  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Open top fermenters. Caps were punched down by hand. Pressing manual.
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank, no nada
  • Pinch of sulfites after Malolactic
  • The second fruit in the ferment was added when it is ready on top of the tank already fermenting. One continuous ferment.

Crianza:

  • Aged in [very] old barrels over one winter

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.

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

Cinsault 2017 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – Reset Ferment – 93 Pts
Sirvan este país bien fresco, para apagar la sed y aprovechar sus deliciosos sabores frutales y terrosos. Patricio Tapia

Cinsault 2017 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – Reset Ferment – 92 Pts
The 2017 Single Ferment Series Cinsault has an addition to its name on the label, The Reset Ferment, which is a reference to a reset after the terrible fires from the year. This is definitely more serious than previous editions, possibly a result of the severe selection to avoid smoke. It comes from two vineyards, one in Portezuelo (where the berries are very small) and the other one in the vicinity of Guarilihue. There is an aromatic touch here and a light to medium palate with very fine tannins. 3,543 bottles were filled in February 2018.

 

Notes on Previous Vintages from this parcel

Descorchados 2017 Patricio Tapia
Cinsault 2016 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – La Vidente Ferment – 93 Pts

"Algunos actores en la industria - me cuenta Mossman- han utilizado el argumento neo-liberal de la oferta y la demanda para pagar un precio no muchas veces justo por fruta deliciosa. Es como robar y dejar una propina. Los vinos Single Ferment Series son nuestra respuesta a esa situación. Al contrario de nuestros vinos de viñedos, Single Ferment Series contienen fruta de más de una parcela, co-fermentados. Es nuestra manera de comprar más fruta a un precio que nos parece justo para contribuir a más productores en el secano interior", añade. Este cinsault viene de 2 parcelas, una en Hauro y la otra en Guarilihüe, ambas en el Valle del Itata. Y la fruta es deliciosa, fresca, viva. Tiene la suavidad de la cepa, pero también la cascada de sabores a frutas rojas. Uno para beberlo por litros.

Cinsault 2016 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – La Vidente Ferment – 89 Pts
The 2016 Single Ferment Series Cinsault was also available for tasting. In this second year they used more fruit from Guarilihue and less from Portezuelo, and it seems like they didn't like the change very much. It has some aromas of cotton candy, a little lighter. This is more easy-drinking, but at the same time it has more minerality.

Cinsault 2017 Single Ferment Secano Interior Portezuelo – The Soothsayer’s Ferment– 90 Pts
The first Cinsault I tried from Garage is part of a co-fermented series, the 2015 Single Ferment Series Cinsault The Soothsayer's Ferment, that aged for a single winter in barrel, with each carrying its own name. It's sold under the D.O. Secano Interior and is sourced from Portezuelo and Guarilihue in Itata. It's light colored and bright with a nose mixing wild berries and some organic, earthy notes. The palate is light and fresh, with an absence of tannins and a pleasant bitterness in the finish. Compared with the 2016, this is more concentrated and tasty, with more fruit from Portezuelo. A more serious Cinsault from Itata.

Pais 2018
Single Ferment Series
Secano Interior – Cauquenes
215 BC Ferment

Pais215BC-bigtall“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: 12,9
pH  3,57
Acidez:  4.1
Azúcar residual: 1,59

7872 bottles filled. (23 barrels Pais)

In a nutshell:

  • Pais from Portezuelo is called 2015 BC ferment ie 215 yrs before Cabernet. There was a bodega making Pais in Portezuelo in 1548. Cab Sauv was documented for the first time in 1763 near Bordeaux and the difference being 215. The name came to us during a talk in London (Imbibe Live Seminar) called “Chile before Cabernet”.
  • 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 2017 when we had devastating bushfires in Chile and a clear and present pattern emerged: the only firebreaks that stopped the spread of the flames were the small green cultivated farms of the age-old vignerons.

Denominación de Origen  Secano Interior – Portezuelo

Color: Yes

Tipo de uva: Pais from two farms

Elaboración:

  • Ancestral farming by hand and horse
  • Naturally fermented with native yeasts
  • Open top fermenters. Caps were punched down by hand. Pressing manual.
  • No temp control (besides opening closing windows) open tank, no nada
  • Pinch of sulfites after Malolactic
  • The second fruit in the ferment was added when it is ready on top of the tank already fermenting. One continuous ferment.

Crianza:

  • Aged in [very] old barrels over one winter

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.

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

Gute Weine

  • Hallo Heiner und Leute von Gute Weine. Wir können diese Seite auf Ihre Website bringen, wo immer Sie möchten! (Lass es mich wissen - Derek)

We bottle about 14 wines per year. All in all it amounts to a little more than 6ooo cases of wine per harvest.

the Parcels  (11 small vineyards bottled each on their own)

  • horizontal-77Each of these is produced from a small vineyard of between 3/4 of a hectare to about 2 1/2 hectares. Sauzal is perhaps the smallest with 185o bottles per vintage. Others are as many as 75oo bottles.

Single Ferment Series Wines

  • horizontal-paisSingle 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, no tweaking.

the Fieldcraft Bottlings

  • horizontal-semillonThese are wines that simply put: usually don’t get made. They are tiny forgotten vineyards that defy the modern model of: necessary scale, practicality for harvest, proximity to transport, valid D.O. paperwork (Denomination of Origin)… and so forth. These vineyards have everything against them, but they are diamonds in the rough. We began with the Phoenix after the bushfires in 2o17 and are now producing three with the 2018 harvest.
  • 1  a Phoenix but with more Cariñena in the blend of principally Pais,
  • 2 a Semillon on skins painstakingly separated from the Sauvignon that had crept into the vineyard.

. target

the Parcels 

We began making wine in 2001 and we have numbered each bottling since then with a lot number: Lot #1, Lot #2, Lot #3 and so on. Seventeen years later our latest release from the Las Higueras Vineyard is Lot 82, that is to say the 82nd bottling since we began in 2001.

Our principal wines are yearly bottlings from 1o small parcels. Each parcel bottled ends in the same digit each year. Pirque for instance always ends in a zero: 2013 Lot #5o, 2014 Lot #6o, 2015 Lot #7o, 2016 Lot #8o, 2017 Lot #9o and so on...

Frequently asked questions 


Why is the varietal on the fourth line down?
Each wine’s varieties are printed on the label, but further down because what is important for us is not the variety but the origin, that is to say, the place and parcel from where it comes. 

Labels
Why stencils and silk screening? And why wax?

When we began bottling wine in 2001 there was no digital printing and short runs of 500 labels were prohibitively expensive. So we learned to paint / silk-screen bottles. Luis our bottle painter has been with us for more than a decade.

When a capsule company insisted we bought 1o,ooo or nothing we sought another solution. A small school supplies / crayon manufacturer had wax that served to seal and was food grade certified. As he was there for us without a minimum and all the colours we wanted we have never given up on him. Today many buy his wax large medium and small.

Tom Sawyer clause : toward full disclosure we must point out that over the past few years, friends, family and students’ of Alvaro’s from the University of Chile have begun helping with some of the grunt work. In this way the pace, rhythm and treatment of the wines remains the same, and we receive a lot of apples.

 

 

 

 

We export most of our production to 14 countries around the world and distribute in Chile directly with help from Alan Grundsky and in Patagonia with Aldea (Patricio Lehuede) Contact in Puerto Natales.  IIf contacted directly we do sell by the case direct especially during bottling season to raise cash for glass & corks!

Nota sobre disponibilidad en Chile :

Garage Wine Co. elabora poco vino y la mayoria de las botellas se va por afuera pedido con anticipación y con allocation. En 2016 empezamos a distrubuir en Chile directo con algo de ayuda de Alan Grundsky. Eso dicho si nos contacta directo si vendemos directo por caja de 6 como minimo especialmente durante las epocas del año cuando estamos embotellando -- para levantar fondos para botellas y corchos!

 
 

Garage Wine Co.  in other people’s words

Wine Advocate Robert Parker ,#222  Dec 2015

I sat down to taste through an exciting collection of wines with Derek Mossman. Garage Wine Co produces wines from Maipo and Maule, and their trademark is wines with great freshness and acidity from some seven vineyards they work. 42,000 bottles per year of highly personal and full of character wines. I later met with Mossman again to walk some of the vineyards for where he sources grapes for some of his Maule cuvées and the work he's doing there to support the local 'huasos' and their vineyards is remarkable. The common thing that I've seen between Mossman, Cancino, Luyt, Parra working in the south is respect -- for the people, the traditions and the places. These are wines of respect. An exciting project to keep in mind.

Wine Advocate Robert Parker ,#230  Apr 2017

The wines from garage Wine Co. are divided into two simple categories: One Winter Wines -- aged for one winter before bottling and Two Winter Wines-- aged for two winters before bottling! The former are simple, fresh and quaffable wines with good acidity; the latter have more depth but always keeping the freshness and especially the character of the vintage, the grapes and the places where they are grown. A name to follow, among the most exciting in Chile. Tasting the whole range with Derek Mossman is one of the highlights of my Chilean report every year. Fun and exciting wines.

Descorchados nota sobre GWCo.

La primera cosecha sumó apenas dos barricas y la bebieron entre los amigos, algunos de ellos incluso compraron parte de esa producción. Hoy hacen unas 45 mil botellas de once vinos distintos, cada uno de parcelas definidas. De hecho, Mossman define Garage Wine Co. como una gestión que, desde su génesis, tuvo su foco en parcelas más que en cepas. “La gracia siempre fue separar las cosas y comparar. De ahí vienen los Lot” –dice Mossman. La filosofía de vinificación es simple. Más que vinos naturales, Mossman define a los suyos como “originarios”, inspirados en la sabiduría campesina, pero con aportes de conocimientos modernos de enología. El origen de sus parcelas o “Lot” comienza en Alto Maipo, pero después extendieron su interés a otras zonas, especialmente en el Maule, que es de donde viene gran parte de su catálogo. Se trata de carignanes de viejas parras en una zona muy cercana a la costa, sobre suelos graníticos. Este vino, como todos los tintos de Garage en la línea Lot y en Vigno, se cría por “dos inviernos” en barricas, las más nuevas de tres años de uso. “Cuando vas a comprar vinos por la zona, los viejos te dicen que el vino que lleva dos inviernos de crianza es el mejor” –dice Mossman. El resultado es el tinto clásico que se necesita para refrescar una tarde de asado con los amigos. Su acidez es intensa, pero también su lado terroso y su textura punzante.

Wine Advocate Robert Parker, Best of 2017 - 14 Dec 2017 Luis Gutiérrez

Traveling south in Chile, I loved the wines produced with dry-farmed Cariñena and País from the day I discovered them. They are not your stereotype of Carménère or Cabernet Sauvignon that many might have in mind. One wine that stands out among those was the 2014 Truquilemu Vineyard produced by Garage Wine Co., the project belonging to Derek Mossman Knapp, Pilar Miranda and Alvaro Peña in the Secano Interior part of Maule, close to Empedrado. It’s one of nine single vineyard bottlings they produce, from an old plot belonging to the Orellana family. Truquilemu is perhaps the freshest corner of the Maule Secano, where reds just manage to ripen on the coastal mountain range that is much older than the Andes. Soils are granitic and sub-soils have cracked granite that allows roots to get deep into cracks. They use ancestral farming methods, cultivating vineyards by hand and horse. It’s mostly Cariñena and a little Monastrell (or Mataró) produced in a very simple way, fermented with natural yeasts and aged in used barrels over two winters. It has incredible freshness with notes of blood orange peel and wild herbs—floral, suggestive, harmonious and elegant. The palate is elegant—an elegant rusticity, I used to say—and shows vibrant acidity, it’s very balanced and incredibly tasty. They also selected a number of barrels from this same vineyard to make their Vigno bottling.

We are slowly making an effort to put up previously bottled wines back online, but it is slow and arduous so please bear with us ... djmk

Yesterday we sat down to blend Maipo Cabs. 

Just like many sessions we have had over the years tasting barrel by barrel. 2018 is a crackerjack of a vintage to be sure. We were happy with the wines and like we do we pulled a couple of barrels back for our solera programme because we thought they spoke to loud instead of harmonising with the rest. As the session came to a close Alvaro asked what Lot number these wines would be? “Lot 100 & Lot 101” I said. 

There was a pause as we all realised it was a bit of a milestone.

It has been a long and winding road since 2003 when we began in the Garage. We owe a great deal of thanks to so many of you out there for putting up with us all these years. You allowed us to do what we do they way we like to do it through good times and bad—including an earthquake, bushfires, and this latest invisible mucker. 

These lots will not be on the shelf for a long time, but perhaps mentioning them here might give us all pause to think of sharing better times ahead when we can raise a centenary lot of GWCo! #gwcowinery #gwcoharvest2018 #movichile #chileanwines

After years tasting our wines to sell wine, this year for the first time we are doing tastings to sell fruit — a rather special old-vine Cab Franc fruit. Instead of buying a part of Las Higueras we have taken on all of it. Part of the job is to inspect the fruit row on row, and the other part is to taste a vertical of what we have done with the fruit : 2o17 & 2o16 barrel samples and 2o15 & 2o14 in bottle. #gwcolashiguerasvineyard #gwcoharvest2018
