VINA LAURENT POLEMICO PAIS
Once the most commonly grown grape in Chile (Superseded by the common global varietals at the turn of the 21st century), it's use in the past has mostly been for table wine but with effort and care it can produce some fantastic offerings. It's taken us quite a while to find such a bottle but we believe we have that in the Polemico Pais from Damien and Lorena Laurent. Produced from 150 years-old ungrafted vines in Chile's Southern Itata Valley, the original heartland of Chilean wine production from the 16th century.
"Supple and fresh. Bursting with red cherries, laced with fresh thyme and spiked with liquorice. Luminous and upbeat."
