Garage Wine Co. País Cariñena Phoenix Ferment 2018

Pirque, Valle del Maipo, Region del Valle Central, ChilePaís-Cariñena Phoenix Ferment falls into the Garage Wine Co 'Single Ferment Series,' although the fruit could be sourced from multiple blocks or vineyard sites. The cariñena lends it a slightly recognizable nose and palate, even with a sense of fruit. At the same time, the pais brings a savoury, scrubby, sparse, cool windy landscape that takes the wine back into unique territory. Fresh, floral, savoury with a richness of texture that is authentically Maule and Chile. Derek Mossman said, "a full posse of people working with us that allowed us to prune, pick (or what have you) at our speed with our people. 2018 is the first year that this effect of the community will be felt in the wines. We think you will agree that the ethereal effect of community shows through." It is the only closed-fermenter wine made at Garage Co. and the only one aged in stainless steel. The result is a unique wine, never an easy thing to make in the wine business.Tasted: 11 October 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: CDN 27.99 select private retailers Producer: Garage Wine Co.Distributors: Revelry Import Company
