The Details

In a Nutshell

Deliciously different for Chile, but classically pebbly PG.

Tasting Notes

Really 'right and proper' stone fruit characters on the nose and palate. This is more along the lines of an Alsatian style of PG, it’s delicious and classically pebbly. The purpose of the Los Otros ('The Others') range is to champion varietals the country is less well known for and it's hidden historic gems. As such, the label celebrates the amazing parcels Eric Monnin finds on his adventures to Chile.

Production Notes

45 year old family planting in the cool mountainous Cachapoal Valley. The vines are grown in ‘parron’ style i.e. trellising of vines overhead to protect the fruit from the sun and keep bunches healthy/ This old block gives us incredibly bright varietal fruit.

100% stainless steel throughout whole treatment is to essentially capture the PG fleeting fruit.

Producer - Boutinot Chile

We have been working with the growers of Sierra Grande for many years, and Boutinot winemaker Eric Monnin has grown a close relationship with the aptly-named Hacienda Valle Frio, a beautiful 200 year old estate in the rocky, riverine Maule Valley. When Eric first visited the long-established family fruit grower he was hugely struck by the beautiful, 200 year old hill-top hacienda whose wooden columns and ancient palm trees have magically survived all the biggest earthquakes in recorded history.He was also struck by the strawberries grown there, and by sheer force of personality convinced them to grow some Pinot Noir! Since 2008, Eric has worked closely with winemaker Rodrigo on extracting the very best expression of their mountainous site apparent in the Sierra Grande Chardonnay and Cabernet, and of course the fabulous Pinot Noir that Eric tasted in those strawberries all those years ago!
