REGION: Valle de Curicó, Chile
INFO: 'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy' reflecting the fact that this wine was vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. The grapes were hand-harvested and brought to the winery in 18kg boxes to preserve the quality. They were destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C, before being fermented with wild yeasts from the environment. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at temperatures of 13 to 17°C and lasted for 25 days. The wine rested on its lees for three months with gentle lees work to impart texture.
Pale and slightly cloudy due to the natural vinification, this Chardonnay offers intense aromas of banana, apple and pear blended with toasted brioche. The full-bodied, rich and creamy palate is balanced by a refreshing and fruity finish.
Three miniatures of Fonseca port, including one 5cl bottle each of the following: Siroco white port (best served chilled), Bin 27 reserve port and the 2014 Late Bottled Vintage, all presented in a lovely wooden box with a sliding lid.
