Pipeño Blanco "Carrizal"

2021
Chile
Maule

Farmer: Ernesto Soto.  Mainly Torontel + Corinta (Chasselas) + Cristalina (Semillon) + Muscat d’Alexandria from organic, dry-farmed bush vines ranging from 100 to 200 old on deep, sandy, clay soils rich in decomposed granite on a flatter parcel in the Carrizal sub-zone of the Maule region. The bunches are harvested by hand and manually destemmed using a traditional zaranda; fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts in open wooden lagares; macerated for 3 weeks with the skins; and aged briefly in wooden tanks called pipas (from which the name “pipeño” is derived). The wine receives a very small amount of sulfur and a gentle filtration before bottling in liters.
