Phoenix Ferment
Pais-Cariñena 2018
Secano Interior Cauquenes
Single Ferment Series

Single Ferment Series wines contain grapes from more than one vineyard, co-fermented to make one wine aged for a single Winter in older barrels. This particular ferment has grapes from Truquilemu, Sauzal & Purapel

Acidity  (g / l) 7,13
pH 3,15
Residual Sugar (g / l) 1,22
Alcohol (% vol) 12.8

2871 bottles filled ( 7 Barrels )

The Vineyards:
– three vineyard sites in Truquilemu (1 hectare) and Sauzal (1.5 hectares) and Purapel  (1 hectare)
– 150 + years old bush-head vines
– granitic soils / sub-soils have cracked granite that allow roots to drink deep down
– on the Coastal Range of mountains (not the Andes) much older and more importantly much slower to cool than the Andes ie crystals granite quartz …

 

Vintage Characteristics:

  • 2018 was an ideal vintage in all -round weather-wise, but beyond the weather and rains each harvest has other factors to weigh in.
  • In 2018 we had a full posse of people working with us that allowed us to prune, pick (or what have you) at our speed with our people. 2018 is the first year that this effect of  community will be felt in the wines. We think you will agree that the ethereal effect of community shows through.

D.O. old colonial law applies to Pais:   Secano Interior – Cauquenes

Color: Straw.

Variety: Pais from two farms Truquilemu and Sauzal, and Cariñena from Purapel 

Elaboration:

  • The only closed-fermenter wine we make.

Crianza:

  • Aged in stainless steel — again, the only one we make.

¿How many lots do you make of this wine?

Just one per Vintage

House note:

This wine will likely surprise you as it did us when we first made it. It’s surprisingly floral and aromatic, fresh and clean, with a vibrant palate, focused and delicious.

 

Ageability

2018 vintage will evolve for 2-3 years, but the wine is made to be enjoyed today upon release in 2020

Best drinking

 2020-2023

Pais-Cariñena Phoenix Ferment 2018 Single Ferment – Secano Interior Cauquenes– 92 Pts

Their blanc de noirs contains a significant amount of Cariñena in 2018, so it is mentioned on the label of the 2018 País-Cariñena Phoenix Ferment from their Single Ferment Series, wines that continue to be sourced from more than one parcel or vineyard site and are (co-fermented) “in one single ferment.” In the (interesting) words of winemaker Derek Mossman, “the idea is to make something like a live recording, hence without tweaking nor dubbing afterward and with multiple microphones”! The 2017 was quite successful, so they picked some more País from Sauzal and some Cariñena from the Purapel vineyard. They pressed the whole clusters, and the only available press was quite big, so they needed to use no less than 4,500 kilos of grapes. It’s surprisingly floral and aromatic, fresh and clean, with a vibrant palate, focused and delicious. 2,871 bottles were filled in October 2018.

Pais-Cariñena Phoenix Ferment 2018 Single Ferment – Secano Interior Cauquenes – 91 Pts
Un blanco hecho de tintos, este blend de 60% de país y 40% de cariñena, todo de viejas viñas en el secano del Maule y donde los racimos se prensan directo. Este vino se mueve por la boca con mucho frescor, acidez firme y algo de esa rusticidad de taninos que ambas cepas han dejado aquí, como un lindo recuerdo para acompañar mollejas.
