Sauzal Vineyard
Empedrado – Maule Valley
Carignan, Garnacha, Mataró

In a Nutshell
– Over the last 10 harvests in Sauzal the wine has changed its varietal composition.

– First it was all cariñena, then we added Garnacha & Monsatrell and then the Garnacha from a second section until in 2018 there is equal parts Garnacha and Cariñena.

– With 2018 Sauzal V. has had more stems added (15 20%)

– Grower / partner Nivaldo Morales (and his wife Otelia!)

– Ancestral farming cultivating vineyard by hand and horse “originario”

House note
Tantalizing aromas of blueberries, violets, orange peel, raspberry leaf and aniseed with a touch of aromatic herbs that provide freshness. The palate is electric, with pulsing acidity, Garage Wine Co – Old Vines Revived ultra-fine tannins and very good length. Both rustic and elegant, wild and subtle. It has precision, elegance, balance and life. Shows no alcohol nor wood. A fresh, Mediterranean blend from a vineyard that was forgotten, revived, regenertaed and today shows what the Maule is capable of
