Cacique Maravilla Chocoli Pet-Nat Rose
From the importer:
About the producer:All of their vines are dry farmed and pertain to the Secano Interior de Yumbel D.O. characterized by its soils of trumao, volcanic sand formed by redeposited ash. Their vineyard was the 33rd registered vineyard in the history of Chile which speaks for just how old these vines are. Actually, you'll find the number 33 on all of their corks paying homage to their ancestors. The oldest vines are without a doubt the país (listan prieto) vines, some of which over 250 years old and accounting for more than half of their total production. The other half comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Moscatel, Corinto and Torrontel. In the winery all of the work is done manually meaning no destemmer, only zaranda (traditional bamboo screen); no presses, only free run juice; no pumps, only gravity. In addition, the wines are made naturally without using any type of oenological products, including sulphur. I guess you could say they're natural wines made manually which isn't always the case these days.

The name Chacoli is a reference to the process in which the wine is made, very much like the Txakolis of old in theBasque Country. Made similarly to the Gutiflower Petnat, this is a Rosé of Pais dry farmed and grown organically. It ishand harvested, destemmed, skin macerated for 1 day (for color) then the free run juice is transferred into fiber glasstanks using gravity where it remains for 2 months before being bottled without filtering, fining, disgorging, or sulfur.
