Professional Wine Reviews for Itzal Pais 'Old Vine' 2016

Rated 90 by Wine Advocate
There is also a pure País, the 2016 Itzal from a specific plot of pure País in the zone of Sauzal from a place sheltered by the afternoon sun (itzal means shadow in Basque) on very poor granite soils. It's a different expression of País, more serious and with freshness. The palate is slightly more austere, with fine-grained tannins and granite character. 2,654 bottles produced.

Additional Information on Itzal Pais 'Old Vine' 2016

Winery Itzal

Country: Chile

Whilst being widely regarded as definitively 'New World' as a wine producing country, Chile has actually been cultivating grapevines for wine production for over five hundred years. The Iberian conquistadors first introduced vines to Chile with which to make sacramental wines, and although these were considerably different in everything from flavor, aroma and character to the wines we associate with Chile today, the country has a long and interesting heritage when it comes to this drink. Chilean wine production as we know it first arose in the country in the mid to late 19th century, when wealthy landowners and industrialists first began planting vineyards as a way of adopting some European class and style. They quickly discovered that the hot climate, sloping mountainsides and oceanic winds provided a perfect terroir for quality wines, and many of these original estates remain today in all their grandeur and beauty, still producing the wines which made the country famous.
