Julio Bouchon Pais Salvaje, Maule Valley, Chile, 2017

About this wine

Wild vines from this heritage grape grow with no intervention whatsoever, so are never pruned and climb up trees, competing for the rain water and nurtients in a creek. 10 metre ladders, as shown on the label, are required to hand harvest grapes from these ancient, sprawling vines, fermentation is with native yeast and ageing is in concrete vats and sulhpur levels are very low. This is as wild and natural as it gets.

In 2017 30% of the grape were macerated carbonically. It has pale blush of red colour, with aromas reminiscent of chicory, a distant trace of bush fire, a raspberry pippy purity and a juicy, evocative, naive beauty.

The 2018 has no carbonic or smoke but is no less beguiling. It is a top 30 Chilean wine in Decanter magazine, May 2019.
