Los Amigos Rogue Vine Grand Itata Blanco
This product is currently sold out.
The latest revolution in wine is happening now - in Itata, Chile, a southern region home to some seriously ancient vines. Rogue Vine is a project devoted to making authentic wines from old bush vines with as little intervention in the winery as possible - think natural fermentation and old oak barrels. Grand Itata Blanco is a blend of Muscat, Riesling and Chardonnay - a dry but intensely fruity and fresh wine in a cool style. Only 1570 bottles of this wine were made and when we opened one of them the first thing we noticed is how the smell dances on the nose with wild and perfumed floral aromas and notes of grass. But the taste is so difficult to characterise. It's extraordinary with citrus locked up in a savoury, perfumed package that when it breaks out it reveals a nutty finish. This is a proper wine lovers wine. So much complexity and unlike anything else we have in the shop. We think this is a wine to pair with cold meets and green olives. Very impressive.
Grapes: Riesling, Chardonnay, Muscat
