Tinto Chicha 2022 (1L)
Maule Valley, Chile
So light, so juicy and so drinkable. With flavors of cherry and pomegranate, light and delicate tannins and a slight smokiness at the finish - it's a new favorite!
Burgundy native Louis-Antoine Luyt has become an important voice in the fight for independent, terroir-driven winemaking in Chile. In a country where wine production is run almost entirely by huge industrial wineries, Luyt has managed to source fruit and rent vines from independent farmers throughout the Maule Valley. He insists on dry farming, horse plowing, organic viticulture and native yeast/intervention free winemaking, and makes the only line of Chilean wines following the European model of using the same varietal to highlight different terroirs.
