2019 Leo Erazo 'Pipeno' Muscat Blanco 1L

Itata Valley, Chile

From the sandy soils and quartz deposits of this lesser known Guarilihue region of Itata where the climate is kept cool by the pacific ocean. The vineyard sits high on a hill and was planted in 1950. Six months on skins, she is super acidic, fresh and crisp with fragrant field peaches kind of feel. No intense or sickly resin like some other Muscat wines, but just intense tropical fruit flavours from the intense levels of skin contact. For 1L the value is wow, serve with food.

About the maker

Leo has worked all over the world, has a Masters in terroir and is a geology fiend; driven to bringing the soils of Itata, Chile to the world.

Leo's business model is simple, developing long-term relationships with a small number of traditional growers, paying them well, picking early and practising minimal fiddling in the winery. Itata Valley was once a very famous wine-producing region. The first vineyards in Itata were planted around the 1500s near the bay of Concepción. Today, however, the Itata Valley represents a forgotten viticulture region in Chile. The likes of Leo, as well as others are out there, are certainly doing their best to revive it.
