Old Vine Pale

In a Nutshell
Truquilemu is perhaps the freshest corner of the Maule high on the Coastal Range of mountains where reds just manage to ripen. This wine is cut earlier than the regular Truquilemu V. red from a corner of the vineyard with a different subsoil – access to more water hence greater yields. We manage this vineyard ourselves (no grower partner) Ancestral farming cultivating the vineyard by hand and horse.

House note
A cheeky chilled red with a very tasty palate: vivid notes of pomegranate, cranberries, wild strawberries and citrus with herbs– that literally makes you hunger for food. Oily on the palate with crunchy berries and linear acidity to match mid-weight phenolics. Delicious and serious. Note : this wine by the glass will make the most macho of men break down and sing the praises of pink. Put it by the glass and/or offer a taste and soon you will have everyone pointing at the bottle to ask: What else do you have by these people? Flexible food match / try with sea urchins / foie gras / rich fish like salmon sushi / Thai food with heat . . . … all things Indian …
