Luyt Huasa de Pilen Alto Pais 2018

Out of stock
"100% Pais. Huasa de Pilen Alto has much in common with Luyt’s pipeño wines, being made from very old País bush vines tended by two huasos, or farmers, in the Maule region of Chile. But it comes from a very special single vineyard called PIlen Alto, vividly described by importer Jules Dressner after a visit: 'Nestled in a mountain surrounded by woods, two independent farmers share small houses directly under magnificent 200-300 year old Paìs grown on deep red clay, granite and schist. The dirt road to get there is way too treacherous for a motor vehicle, so the grapes are brought back up by ox-cart. At 580 meters, this is the highest elevation Luyt works with, giving the wines a freshness unmatched in anything else he produces. A trademark smokiness, which Luyt attributes to the schist, it noticeable with a little air after opening.'" -David Bowler Wines
