El Compadre' Pinot Noir - 2019

Active in Chilean agriculture, grape growing and winemaking since 1740, the Echeverria family established their current vineyards and winery in 1923 in the outskirts of Molina, a town in the Curicó Valley. Here, they grow grapes from French pre-philloxera rootstocks, on their 80 ha of vineyards. Originally established to produce bulk wines, in 1990, the winery was converted to produce quality wines for export. In the following years, Echeverria was one of the few boutique wineries to emerge from Chile, and the first family winery from Chile to sell wine to Harrods in London. Garnet red with violet hues, this low intervention wine has intense aromas of cherry, blueberry, hibiscus and violets. On the palate, it is fresh with juicy acidity and medium, silky tannins, and spiced cherry flavors.
