Viticulture: Organic Farming / Natural Wine
Wine making: Manual harvested grapes are destemmend and co-fermented for six months on skins in tank. Native yeasts used. Matured in cement tanks where natural malolactic fermentation takes place. Unfined but filtered with a small amount of sulphur added.
The delicate underbrush aromas of Itatas wild grass, red fruits and a little bit of cassis are aromas and flavours that characterise this wine. A fresh wine, delicate, marked by fine grain tannins that give a very unique structure and create a long lingering ending with a distinctive mineral character due to the volcanic soils where the old vines thrive.
A Los Vinateros Bravos is located in the Old Itata Hills which is a place where terroir allows for incredibly unique wines. The vineyards are on volcanic or granitic soils with large quartz deposits. They have mild summers with a lot of influence from the Pacific Ocean on the Itata River. Fresh sea breeze slows the ripening of the grapes.
