Viejas Tinajas Cinsault 2014, De Martino, Itata Valley, Chile

Sold out.

De Martino is one of the most exciting and dynamic companies making wine in Chile today employing a more natural, non-interventionist approach which is illustrated by this stunning Cinsault. The delicate Cinsault grapes are grown organically on old bush vines at altitude ensuring freshness and complexity, and aged in century old clay pits known as ‘Tinajas’ to preserve the vibrant fruit character and regional expression. It is wonderfully delicate in the glass with a thrilling pale crimson hue that masks the intensity depth of flavour. There are delicious red fruits flavours of sour cherry and raspberry accompanied by hints of dusky herbs such as rosemary and lavender that develop into a long satisfying finish.
