From one of the oldest wineries in South America, Gonzales Bastias, this bottle is made from 100% País, aka the Mission Grape, aka Listan Prieto grown in a tiny vineyard site in the Maule Valley in Chile with some of the vines being planted as far back as the 1800s. The wine(s), made naturally and by hand to the extreme, are the most compelling argument for the state of Chilean viticulture these days. They are nothing like the wines we’ve come to expect from Chile–and that is what makes them incredible. Light in the glass yet concentrated with tropical fruit notes, this País combines the drinkability of great Beaujolais with the minerality of a great Rhône red. If you’re looking for a wine that is totally unique, interesting and tasty, and sure to spark a conversation, here it is.
