2019 Alice L'Estrange 'Barrica Rica' Pais

Itata Valley, Chile

Alice's first set of Chilean wines released into the wild have been a huge hit. We've been holding back but here they are. 100% Pais, granite, grown by Soledad Camaaño on 200+ yr old vines. A combination of an eastern (Andes) and a western (Pacific Ocean) facing sites giving the wine half linear style fruit and the other more plumper and red. Rated 95/100 by the Wine Front. From Alice: 'pale and bright, shimmering with its web of ultra fine, firm, silty tannins, all gossamer in texture, stains the palate gently with red berry fruitiness and light, sage and fennel-like herbal things.'

About the maker

You may remember her from the George wine label here in Australia, but Alice L'Estrange, maker, importer and distributor of traditional Chilean wines has a brand new Chilean set of wines to show the world.

Strange Grapes represents small producers who focus on healthy farming and natural winemaking. All wines come from dry-grown vineyards of traditional Chilean cultivars. Alice's portfolio represents an ancient and often overlooked, small corner of the viticultural world. We showcase producers making uniquely Chilean, pre-industrial wines, people who project centuries-old practices into the future, reviving a unique and historic culture that is truly Old World. We believe it is as important to champion organic farmers as it is to provide a welcoming market for producers inheriting degraded vineyards and who are leaving glyphosate and chemical fertilisers in the past. We champion full transparency, as such we work with a tiny amount of producers and support them in their journey beyond box-ticking organics towards true soil regeneration.
