'No es Pituko' is Chilean slang for 'it ain't fancy' reflecting the fact that this wine wasvinified naturally, without any additions at any stage. The Viognier grapes were hand-harvested and brought to the winery in 18kg boxes to preserve the quality. They were destemmed, pressed and cooled at 8°C, before being fermented with wild yeasts from the environment. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks attemperatures of 13 to 17°C and lasted for 25 days. The wine went through malolacticconversion resulting in the textured mouthfeel and buttery notes before spending three months on its fine lees imparting texture and complexity.
