The vineyards for Fidèle Soleilla are perched high in the dramatic hills and terraces above the Vallée d’Agly with a unique character of its own. The famed black schist is interspersed with pockets of limestone from the higher slopes, combining the richness and power that is typical of Maury with a fresher, more finely defined character.
Honeysuckle and apricot aromas and a rich, almost unctuous palate that is somehow still dry, tangy and refreshing.
Echeverria is a winery in Chile’s oldest wine regions, Curicó Valley. With a view for sustainability, the vines are even irrigated by the melting snow off the Andes Mountains. Winemaker Roberto Echeverría Jr is inspired by his French heritage and so focuses on producing wines from French varietals in his own style of blending New World innovation with Old World elegance. The 80 year old cellar also houses a museum which holds many relics of winemaking including a French grape press from the 1930’s.
‘No es Pituko’ is Chilean slang for ‘it ain’t fancy’ reflecting the fact that this wine was vinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. Vibrant aromas of peach and tropical fruits are layered with buttery notes and balanced by a refreshing natural acidity.
Clothes maketh not the man; judge the wines on what’s in the bottle, not by means of preconceived ideas. Aromas of candied lemon, cooked apple and mango with a core of minerality. Soft and voluptuous, it has a lovely ripeness and a fleshy, creamy mouthfeel, which leads to a perfect tangy freshness giving some zip to its otherwise mellow feel.
