Winemaker's Notes:

Deep violet-red in color, with scents of ripe red fruit, dark chocolate, cinnamon and a touch of black pepper grace the bouquet. Lush, rich and fruit forward, with silky, soft tannins.

Ideal with aged cheeses, smoked meats, and pastas with well-seasoned sauces.

My Notes:

About Nativa:

Nativa wines capture the very essence of Chile's superior and unique terroir with organically grown grapes nurtured only by the warmth of the sun and the nutrients in the soil. This producer’s naturally distinctive wines are, as a result, full of the flavors and aromas that are helping to make the country one of the most exciting wine producing regions in the world.

Nativa wines were the first in Chile to be made with grapes certified as organically grown. The country, indeed, offers excellent growing conditions for organic agriculture, with its four natural barriers – the Atacama Desert to the north, the Andes Mountains to the east, the Pacific Ocean to the west and the Antarctic glaciers to the south –providing natural isolation and protection of the vineyards.

Led by Chief Winemaker, Felipe Ramírez, the Nativa team is passionate about embracing the natural environment and has implemented sustainable winemaking practices. The winery uses recycled materials for labels and packaging, produces grapes free of chemical residue, strives to improve soil fertility, and utilizes the maximum amount of renewable resources, all while maintaining the genetic diversity of the ecosystem.
