Bright cherry beauty. Breathing in cherries, raisins, tart plum, violet chewing gun, a hint of an Oreo vanilla filling, tobacco, and tomato leaves. Mmmmmm what a first sip of cherries, plum, smoke, good earth, and a bit of home grown dirty cherry tomato that’s been stewing in the sun. You have no idea how much I love that bit of tomato. I’m so addicted I even have candles scented of their stems, leaves and the whole kit and caboodle. BTW could someone please grill me a steak?
Pairs with Cheez-It’s: makes it more rich and full
My 2nd Estación Yumbel wine and well obviously different from their Tinaja 2020 (Moscatel de Alejandria) “Do I Hear Hoofbeats?” (love his horses), and it’s another beautiful expression of what you can find in Bío Bío and from the experience and vine passion of Mauricio & Daniela. I love that they use the hands off & traditional ways, especially in the case of their use pipas made of Raulí wood (beechwood) during the fermentation and aging. Shame that the government wasn’t as fond of these trees linked to their wine heritage and only thought of the paper industry, and the money they could make by planting white pine, etc. Well, at least Estación Yumbel and other like minded winemakers & families are carrying on. Cheers to this beautiful Pipeño and the history it will continue to make! ❤️🍷
