Bouchon - Pais Salvaje - Maule
Bouchon are 4th generation viticultutralists situated in the Maule Valley. Current incumbent Julio Bouchon and his children carry on the family tradition of creating distinctive, terroir-driven wines. The Pais Salvaje is a wine which celebrates the native grape of Chile which up until relatively recently was considered a workhorse variety. This fascinating wine comes from wild Pais vines which have grown unchecked with a wooded area and now requires hand harvesting on ladders, some of which are 5 meters tall.
A perfume of ripe, fresh wild strawberry and cherry flavours intermingle with spice, wild herbs and banana character on the nose; the elegant, lighter-bodied palate shows filigree tannins and refreshing balancing acidity.
