This wine rescues an old tradition deeply rooted in rural Chile: winemaking using large earthenware jars. Viejas Tinajas has been fermented and aged as naturally as possible in amphorae over 100 years old, without intervention and in search of a faithful reflection of its origin.  Consider this: Cinsault, old bush vines (35 hl/ha yields), on granitic soils, farmed with horses, whole berry ferment, no punch down, gentle pressing. In the winter the malolactic is ready. The wine is not filtered or fined and there is no added sulphur. It is very silky and Pinot-like with red cherry fruit. The watchword here is delicacy.
