This project was launched in 2015, thanks to viticulturist Pedro Izquierdo, who formed ties with the community of Buchahueico in the Purén zone of the Malleco Valley. He began teaching two local families there to grow grapes, and today they have five hectares, all planted to pinot noir. The wine was fermented in cement and stainless steel and then aged in foudres, barrels, and cement for a year. It's a pinot that has more earthy and herbal notes than fruit. Many Chilean pinots take the easier fruity route. This one takes a different, much earthier path. Score - 95. (Patricio Tapia, guiadescorchados.cl, 2020)
